Don't think so, but surely Flash will become lesser and lesser important on the web afterwards.

i cant see this. the only reason to use flash currently is to make interactive/graphic intensive areas, and html5 does not have the capacity to do this.

anyone who uses flash for small links/slideshows obviously needs to learn more javascript.

nope, it will not. and its not intended to

I do avoid using flash in all my websites, i use AJAX/CSS3 instead.

But there are instances that the only solution is by using flash.

Sure, eliminate flash in all presentational purposes. but you'll still need flash for interactive content like games, apps and multimedia.

HTML 5 is not supposed to make flash obsolete, rather to complement it and to minimize its use for trivial matters like slideshows for example.

Let's face it, HTML5 has limited functionality. It was a makeshift proprietary (ad hoc) solution by-Apple-for-Apple to get all the money in one pot. It's no competition for Adobe/Macromedia Flash. It doesn't have the depth of functionality, compatibility, usability or versatility of Flash and never will have. Why? Because it lives on a one brand of phone. I don't see google/youtube championing it anytime soon. Here's how it goes (simplified version):

Hey Adobe, you suck, no money for you.
Yeah but you suck without us, so pay us.
Screw your flash. It's old hat anyway.
What are you gonna use then?
Umm... Hang on... There, HTML5.
Haha, that absolutely sucks.
Correction: It "iSuck"s. So it's already been bought. Now go away.
We're going, but first, look at that...
What is it?
An entire generation of web designers who we've been feeding, hand and mouth, for the last 20 years that have just stopped buying your useless web devolving strokey toys.
Yeah? Well screw them too. We only cater for the micro blogging hipster phone fondling twitter kids now. Get out of here Adobe, you old prehistoric dinosaur fossil...

And so on...and so forth... ad infinitum...

HTML5 is great imo. I don't think Flash will become obsolete. At least not yet.

I have seen some great HTML5 showcases but I lost all the links.
