Jobs: Thoughts on Flash

I'm really surprised Steve Jobs wrote this and put it out there for all to see.

Essential thoughts:
1) Flash is not an open format
2) Flash is not necessary for the "full web" experience
3) Reliability/Security/Performance issues
4) Hardware (H.264) vs. software (Flash) video decoding and battery life
5) MouseOver events
6) Adobe wants to use Flash to create native iPhone/iPad/iPod touch apps
