Adobe in Push to Spread Web Video to TV Sets

Um. Why? Who would want this? It's not enough Adobe crashes my browser at inconvenient times, now they want to do it to my TV too?

It's not an accident that "Adobe" has several letters in common with "abomination."

Oh, bother.

In its defense, Flash can do some pretty cool non-movie stuff. My team looked into using the Flex SDK for an executive dashboard. They have some very nice interactive charting controls. Even so, Flash is a bloated piece of crap performance-wise.

Microsoft Silverlight seemed surprisingly lightweight and snappy when I gave it a test drive for the dashboard project, but the feature set, at least in v2.0, is also lightweight and sparse.
