Submission + - Adobe donates Flex SDK to Open Source community (

ProbablyJoe writes: InfoQ reports that Adobe is to donate it's web application SDK, Flex, to an "an established open source foundation" — suspected to either be the Open Spoon Foundation (who have been working on an open source fork of Flex), or the more established Apache Foundation

Adobe has stated on it's blog that they consider HTML5 to be a better technology for the future than it's own Flex platform, causing frustration among developers who have used the platform for enterprise applications

Is this a generous contribution to the open source community, or just Adobe offloading another failing technology?
