Flash isn't just for web pages; it's pretty important for embedded
applications. It's definitely the quickest and cheapest way to develop
a custom GUI (no standard widgets, which is fine for touchscreen apps).
I know of several companies that develop Linux based kiosk systems
that use Flash. I've worked on a few in the past. Having another OS
option would be nice.
