Flash and The Future

Say, only by lurking around here at kirupa (btw best. site. evar) have I realized just how dynamic and useful flash is. It can be used for a hojillion things, from displaying databases and portraying physics to making games and whatnost. It’s really a masterwork of genius, flash is.
How much time do you think flash has? I mean for how long do you think it will keep evolving and being generally used and accepted? Cause, you know, I’d hate to see it go for one reason or another.
Was just hoping you good folk could illuminate my curious mind.
Take care! :smiley:
