It was more as a demonstration of how the technology worked. The main "thing" was the fact that they had the Unreal engine compiling with Flascc and running natively in Flash *last* year.

Plus you get that this was running in a VM, right? So my laptop was running a VM with 2GB of RAM in VMWare running Flash running Quake 1 that I had just compiled from source using the Flascc compiler... that was what blew me away, not the fact that they had ported Quake 1. The performance in that fairly extreme test (emulating 32bit Windows in a VM under 64bit Windows 7) with really good results.
