    Good idea, or not?

    Personally I think it's mad to deny support of flash. Of course not all people will be using the tablet version, but surely if they enable flash they'd be one step ahead of Apple and now they will possibly be losing out in revenue.

    It is always a bad idea to restrict. The point is not which one is 'better' HTML5 or flash.
    But I don't care. Android is the best OS for tablets anyway and there you can have flash and HTML5.

    Thanks for yout input.

    And Yen I do agree with Android being better for tablet OS as it's slim, feature packed and doesn't require silly resources.

    I just find it silly how M$, of any people, would restrict flash.

    I think it's stupid that they're doing that, but on the other hand, I hope this will encourage developers to dump flash and use html5. I HATE flash.

    I have this issue where it constantly locks up my browser, I need to turn it off and only use it for youtube and things that need flash, it would be nice if we could do way with it for good.

    Knowing MS though they're probably doing it so they can push silverlight, yet another plugin that has to be installed in a browser opening yet another security hole.
