However, since stuff is highly dynamic, you'd also have to predict user
input - which certainly is nearly impossible (or does anyone know of a
program that does a >= 99% guess on what Joe User will do next?).

Now what is next? OCR for images to get to text that is placed in logos,
buttons or anything like that? IMHO, Flash is good for presentation pro-
gramming for exhibitions. Nothing more. If someone can convince me that
Flash is supported on the majority of OS, I'd also apply Flash to Internet
or (big) Intranet documents. But since the number of OS is limited and
support for *nix-based OS is even more limited...
But that's only my personal opinion ;-)
