The negative hype around flash after apple categorically rejected them for inclusion in iOS safari has made flash look like a non-peforming platform in the eyes of everybody.
This opinion is not totally untrue though. I tried writing an app using Flex for iOS and quickly realized it doesn't perform as well since it can't leverage multi-threading of iOS (since it's a single threaded runtime)
