    Hi all, I'm looking for Actionscript developers to work with me (I'm a designer) on a gig at Autodesk. Please ping me if you want to learn more about it. Thanks!

    All depends on who you listen to. Co-existence for the foreseeable future. Flash Player and AIR will continue to be Adobe's distribution channel for video and gaming, lots of Adobe investment there. A lot will depend on how implementation of HTML5 across browsers goes and how the JS framework wars go over the next few years. The is no solution for complex enterprise apps and many who have built them in Flex are taking a wait and see stance.
