If you can build Avalon applications that easily interact with web servers etc. I guess Macromedia is are frightened that all the web application developers is going to Avalon/XAML (except for Mac users and maybe Linux (by blogs etc. you can smell that Macromedia
is playing with the *nix platform in the labs)
I bet MS with all their resources can develop this kind of technology faster and better then anyone and can easily whipe out Flash or any other technology in a second.
What do you think, is the technologies alike or am I wrong?
Well, Avalon will only run on Longhorn machines, so Flash is not threatened by that for many years. There will always be a role for cross-platform graphics, such as SVG, as well.
I think the problem with flash is its focus on activex controls and macromedia-centered development tools. If you want to create animated vector graphics with .NET tools and languages you have to use something like VG.net -- activex controls are on the way
