No, I'm a flash game developer and there are *A LOT* of flash game
developers out there, and it's now the easiest platform to develop
games for.

I'm 100% sure that a number of Flash game developers (professional or
amateur) would love to contribute game & edugame content for the XO.

Gnash just doesn't cut it. AVM1 is just too slow, especially for the XO-1.

I don't think you've developed for it in the past 3 years then. Flash
is an absolute joy to make games in. As a kid too, I got a big
headstart on my classmates because I had educational Math & Word games
on our home computer.

Games in general proven to be one of the best ways to engage students
- make learning fun, and they will learn.

I have a Bookworm-like (Boggle-like) word game that's good to go on
the XO with a few graphical tweaks, but it's in Flash 9 AS3 AVM2 and
will not work with Gnash.
