Some people do, not everybody.
Flash's demise has been reported over and over again.
Sofar it still survives against all odds.
When Adobe announces that it *plans to* retire Flash
on date X, that doesn't neccessarily mean it *will*
retire it on that date. And even if it would, it's
by no means the end of Flash in daily practice.

I recall Adobe saying it will kill its Flash a few years ago too. :/


That it did. You just didn't state the time frame.

Looks like the platform support was reduced to 5-8 years.
