Google and Adobe are doing the right thing and compiling Flash 10.2 for honeycomb... it will likely be ready in a month or two.
This has NOTHING to do with your hard on for bashing Flash.. it has to do with the fact that since 10.2 is almost ready.. why waste time even making a 10.1 version for Honeycomb...
Apple has said all along the reason that they don't support Flash is because the performance on their machines and devices SUCKS. And that's true. And it's exactly why it won't be included in the launch of the Xoom. They could use a version that isn't specifically tailored to the Tegra 2, but they won't, because it would be jittery and suck up battery life. That's exactly why it isn't included on Apple devices. When Flash can make a stable product on an Apple platform, Apple will include it.
The whole thing just reeks of irony. Remember when people were hating on the iPhone because it didn't have Copy/Paste or SMS messaging at one point? Didn't stop them from saying that the device sucked, even though it got the features and implemented them just fine later on.
So, you'll pardon me if I take the time to find the hypocrisy hilarious.
