The $10M venture capital is for a reason: Adobe charges _a_lot_ of
money for embedding Flash in devices, and doesn't port it to most
devices. A free Flash technology platform - player and media server
primarily, authoring environment secondarily - that doesn't cost
millions _per_year_ in licensing, that you are free to port to
whatever architecture _your_ engineers decide is most appropriate for
your device, is worth paying for.

It is unlikely Adobe is going to cede that lucrative market without a fight.
