Gosling on Flash

I have a lot of respect for Sun's James Gosling, fellow Canadian that he is, and inventor of Java, but his comments here about Adobe Flash seem off center to me: http://reddevnews.com/qandas/article.aspx?editorialsid=121

In particular, "If you look at something like Flash, when you get to the much more advanced stuff -- richer interfaces, more complex network protocols, more complex APIs -- it really falls short."

John Dowdell, fellow Adobian, captures my sentiments exactly in his blog here: http://weblogs.macromedia.com/jd/archives/2020/01/gosling_on_flas.cfm
