Adobe ceased the development of Flash for mobile browsers and has been concentrating on creating Adobe Air and Flash for desktop platforms. However, it seems that the company is now planning to bring Flash back through Windows 8 even as Microsoft is trying to dispense with plug-ins.
Microsoft is currently working on Windows 8, its upcoming operating system that will be a successor to Windows 7. Windows 8 has been equipped with different user interface configurations (desktop and metro) and processors (x86/64 and ARM).
Adobe, meanwhile, is waiting to finalize the details involving configurations that will support Flash Player and Adobe AIR in Windows 8. When the release dates have been decided and the details are finalized, the document will be updated.
So, we see that Flash is far from becoming history and could well make a comeback with the next version of Windows. We will probably get a better picture when things are finalized by both Adobe and Microsoft.
