I have been trying to understand the implications of Jelly Bean. I understand that Flash will no longer be compatible with the OS, but that it might be side loaded. I also understand from unofficial-official sources that if flash is installed prior to JB that it might still work provided you have the correct browser installed. What I am unclear of is whether or not the upgrade will be optional, or mandatory. I've been trying to figure out exactly what I will lose by not having flash. The fact that android operating systems supported flash was for me, a big selling point of having android in the first place. What will the internet be like without flash? Is there enough html support? other supportI'm not sure about? how will google earth and other flash dependent sites fully work, or be functional at all without it?
I love that android is always trying to better itself, but perhaps it's time the upgrades slow down a bit so that the android market doesn't outpace the rest of the worlds marketplace for which it was intended to exist in. Apple ecosystem rejected flash, now android is basically saying they don't want it either. What about the user? What do the users want?
