Whoever is responsible for "fliping the switch" to FORCE the EOL of Flash; put me and many others out of business. I have had many web sites that were made entirly in flash. To rework all that was way too much to undertake and way too expensive a project. That closed a huge part of business when that STUPID EOL happened. There is actually NO SUCH THING as an End of Life of any software! End of LIFE has to do with something that is LIVING and life ends NOT because they CHOOSE to do so... But because it is NATURAL. There is NOTHING natural about ending software use. The software creators do this to FORCE people to PAY for this change when it was NOT NECESSARY! This sort of thing is just rediculous.

Flash EOL is the STUPIDEST thing EVER! And ranks in the same catagory as ENDING the life of an OS to FORCE the upgrad to a WORSE one. You couldn't have just SOLD the software to another company? I have thousands of files produced in FLASH that I can't use and cannot recreat in anything else. Thank you so very much for this abuse. EOL is just a word game that has been used to FORCE people to change when IT IS NOT REAL. It shouldn't be called End of Life... IF the software was ALIVE and YOU kill it; then YOU are just murdering software! Bunch of IDIOTS!!!

 

No, I don't care WHAT anyone has to say about this. THIS is the best answer to the nonsense any software vender does to people that have been using this for many years. When I first found out about it, there wasn't any time to make any adjustments... It would have taken more than ONE lifetime to alter all the files and animations that were created over the years. SO, it just SHUT down that side of business. Thank you so very much for this ABUSE.

Flash was EOLed because of massive security vulnerabilities. It wasn't just Adobe that EOLed it, it was every single major browser. Not only that, but (a) this happened more than a year ago (December 20, 2020), and (b) you had several years' worth of warning also (July 2017). It's a bit late in the day to be complaining about it.

 

Furthermore, this site is for users to connect with users. Complaining here does exactly no good, because you're only abusing fellow users who had nothing to do with the decision.
