Still a lot of great flash based stuff out there, and more always being created. Piles of games still available online as well.
Let the bitching and hating begin.... lol!
I like girls with Flash... lol!

Even the national weather service uses flash. : )

And again, I'm just saying, I want the option and capability to use everything that's out there. Well cept MOV and anything else Apple... heh. But we have VLC for that.
My point is, how many things that are actually truly useful are going to be flash based in a few years? The trend is moving towards running stuff on native code in the browser, and that includes HTML5 technologies.
Perfect example: If I load let's say Facebook on Firefox for Android, it will give me an experience about as solid as the app would give me, and that same experience would translate to Safari on iOS or IE on Windows Phone, or Chrome on any of that platforms. We can even consider Firefox on Firefox OS or the default browser on Ubuntu phone too.
The reality of the situation is non-W3C technologies are really on their way out. It's not an immediate transition as some will make it out to be, however I do believe we are at the tipping point, and the future of the web will be focused entirely on W3C standards as it should be, just ask Tim Berners Lee, the guy who created the World Wide Web and founded the W3C.
The fact of the matter is, and my point, there's still mountains of flash out there, more being created, and I can use all I want. I like having it all. j/s
Also, if you look around you will also find a whole load of flash creation apps. So disagree all you want, it'll be around a good long while yet. :D
There also exists iOS and Android versions of this application, so therefore it makes no sense as to why they should use flash on their desktop website, especially when they could use things like HTML5 to accomplish what they need. Hell, even Internet Explorer (The NSA's favorite tracking device) supports modern web technologies like HTML5 now.
With the exception of ad-enabled embedded videos, I'm able to have a perfect HTML5 experience on YouTube.
Anything useful doesn't rely on flash. Google Docs? No outside plugins. Google mail? No outside plugins. Any other useful Google tool? Everything in the browser, with the exception of Google Talk plugin. Microsoft is also headed in the direction of ditching plugins like flash and silverlight, and same goes for Apple, as flash just doesn't make any more sense.
So let's get real here, flash is on it's way out, it's a dead technology. Youtube HTML5 is very mature, any serious web application doesn't use flash, Netflix has been experimenting with HTML5 so Silverlight is also going to die out.
