This is what happens when a format becomes a standard. They can do almost WTF they want without consequence. They never ever ever have to release a 64bit flash if there isnt something that comes out that threatens their hold.

From what I read, it sounds as though that there is the usual struggle between developers to gain and/or hold a "king on the mountain" position for their particular protocols. Here is something cited from Wikipedia:

Quote:
HTML 5 is the proposed next standard for both HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0, as development on the next version of the latter has stopped. HTML 5 was initially said to become a game-changer in Web application development, making obsolete such plug-in-based rich Internet application (RIA) technologies as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Sun JavaFX.[2] Such applications would be made obsolete by specifying a standard video codec for all browsers to use. However, in December 2007, the editor of the burgeoning draft specification dropped the recommendation of the free software Theora and Vorbis codecs, after opposition from Apple and Nokia. This means HTML 5 does not currently specify a common video codec for Web development.
For me, the primary use of Flash is to view Hulu, because even though Opera maintains the lead in HTML5, it still requires it to display it's programs. It appears that this program is used to prevent capturing of the films, so a common standardized HTML video codec would probably effect the availability of online movies and programs.

I doubt that they will put the time and effort into a x64 Flash, until they believe that Flash won't be obsoleted.

Depending on your perspective, either spelling might work, but in this instance perhaps effect is best.
