Riftwar Ok! Now you are talking about the financial side, which is very tangential to what you initially claimed about open source and doesn't change anything!
Riftwar What would you do if Harmon/Samsung decides to stop supporting Air and archives it in some hidden Samsung vault because a corporate exec says it doesn't make enough money.
What gives you the confidence that it will not happen to the Haxe communities in future? Look at all those beautiful technologies that are currently abandoned, just because they were open source and couldn't keep up with the pace of technology changes. Unfortunately developers also move on!
Riftwar That doesn't happen with open source as it is community run.
The last time I heard someone said this to me(5 years ago), was when I enquired about libGdx & its future 😔
Riftwar in particular I can now choose where and how I wish to distribute my apps.
Haxe is a cross compiler, the burden of cross platform development still exist and the hill to climb is pretty steep especially when you compare it with others like cocos, defold, godot & few others https://github.com/collections/game-engines
