Perhaps the JIT compiler is not for Actionscript per se, but to allow them to run x86 binary codecs.

What seems really weird to me, *really* weird, is that Adobe are achieving their ARM implementation of Actionscript by writing an x86 to ARM JIT compiler. Why would you do that rather than recompile your C-code that implements Actionscript, for the ARM? Or if Macromedia had been shortsighted enough to code it in x86 assembler in the 1st place, it would be easier to rewrite it in C. Have they lost the source code to their Actionscript interpreter?

Flash is available for PowerPC. Any reason to insist on ARM?

OpenGL is really not a good solution for any UI. It just wastes CPU cycles and memory bandwidth and graphics hardware that burns your battery. I have a beautiful solution that uses no more than 2% or 4% of CPU on 300MHz MIPS for STB in 1280x720 HD graphics, with minimal 2D hardware support, of course, more 2D hardware support, the better. They are in real products in consumer's hand. Any QT or OpenGL whatever can beat that?

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
