WTF with the title?
and if flash does die, those annoying flash ads will be replaced by hideous embedded HTML 5 videos and this time your NoScript plugin won't be able to stop it.
Maybe someone will come up with NoVideo who knows.
Anyways, same shit different smell or same smell different shit which ever you like.
what do you call this?
Vendor lock in?
I don't believe any web applications are too big/complicated to rewrite.
These are large corporations who have all the money and resources in the world.
It's the people working there who can't be bothered to rewrite it since it's not broken.
Hence the term vendor lock in.
If these companies are willing to risk losing all data by sticking with ancient software then maybe they deserve it.
Losing data means no work right so it must be good for everyone.
is here to make money.
If whatever company you're working on right now is not making money then you're not gonna get paychecks.
It's as simple as that.
Get over it!!
Monty really needs to get a life.
What is sold is not yours anymore to decide.
Imagine buying a second hand house and the previous owner keeps asking whether he can live with you.
It's just crazy.
Even if he only gets 1% of the $1bn that's $10mil better of.
Plus he forks it already (MariaDB), I don't know why he keeps pulling strings.
