PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And so, Flash on mobile is now completely dead. "There will be no certified implementations of Flash Player for Android 4.1. Beginning August 15th we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th."

I guess it's a completely unmaintainable code base. Improving it is probably impossible and open sourcing would be embarrassing. It's from the 90's.

It is not a valid argument at all.

Almost all software we depend upon has been implemented in the 80s and 90s.

Java is so 90s; Linux is 90s based in an OS created in the 70s.
Windows is 90s; .NET is 2000s but runs on top of Windows...

The "real world" programming languages were born at 70s and 80s.
So, telling some technology comes from the 90s sounds contemporary and really current... to me.
