Did anyone besides me check out the page that Ian refers to? If you did,
you may notice that Gabocorp is in need of an editor.

Not my main point, but IMHO excluding any large part of a document's
potential audience is not in the best interest of anyone who desires to
sell a product or service. If you are pretty much dismissed by Gabo if
you don't use Shockwave, he/they are telling you you're not important.
This seems like biting the hand that feeds. Who do they think their
potential customers are? In tech writing, knowing that our users are a
diverse lot, we are used to aiming toward a (possibly low) common
denominator. Exclusion for the sake of a 'future' look isn't justified.
