Wait , how does it come that we are discussing statements attributed to the foundation , what purpose the raspberrypi.org website should serve , how a educational goal should be fulfilled through use of multimedia and all that now ?
I thought this was a technical discussion about how and why Flash does not or might do work
AFAIK , the Foundation sees the Pi as an means to an end , as a "catalyst" . The Pi fulfills the goals of the project to 2% ( okay perhaps more ), so to speak. It is a stepping stone. They have admitted that none of their formal goals have been reached.
And yes , the Foundation is pointing to the community. They rely on it for bugtesting, Raspbian , the mirror system , Distribution porting , the Wiki , OSdev tutorials , user support and for the future X11 , Flash and whatever else.
They have given us the hardware - we give the software.
All of this is to my understanding , i might err , mods - feel free to correct.
