That might be a while.

If it's obsolete enough to no longer be supported by anything Apple makes, I see no reason why it has to be supported by SteamOS. Any Web designer who can't be bothered to care about people browsing on an iPad, which by the way has been around since 2010, doesn't deserve traffic from people browsing on a Steam Machine.

As much as I would have to say that Apple sell low-cost/quality products at a premium, and their /huge/ poularity is a sad enditement on humanity. I, as a web developer have to agree.

It's all well and good to dislike something, but when it has a significant market share, you'd have to be an idiot to ignore it.

That said, HTML5 isn't yet 100% ready to remove any need for flash for consumers.

This is mostly down to the software developers and the rate at which they adopt HTML5, rather than it's, for want of an accurate term, infancy.

It should be noted though, that the HTML5 specifcation is still only a "candidate recommended" and it can be subjected to change/updates as frequently as "nightly": link[www.w3.org] (You may need to scroll down a bit to find HTML5).

So yeah, HTML5 isn't technically perfectly stable yet... despite work on the HTML5.1 specification having already started... (Don't ask, I don't understand the processes the W3C go through either xD)

On a final note. I... rather dislike Adobe Shockwave Flash, and would not be the least upset should be found floating in a river suddenly one morning... The sooner the better, really.

With Linux you kill flash and use http://mozilla.github.io/shumway/ instead :)

Is it made in Flash? Well, now I understand why Steam Big Picture sucks and is slow as hell.
