Well, it might be obsolete, but that's only because of poor project managing. And perhaps you don't fully realize what this app can be used for. I'm not a programmer, and yet I can do really useful applications with Director. And I can do it fast. That's where its strenght lies. It's easy to program because of Lingo. Flash is a pain to program for us non programmers, I think. It's hard to learn and its grammar is too non humane. And Director isn't primarily for the web, it's mainly for offline applications. As I said before, it's in need of an update, a complete overhaul. I'm sure Lingo and its predecessors has got many awards because of its simple and humane approach to programming, and I hope they'll continue developing it.

It wasnt made to run on the web, they hacked in these features somewhere along the line...and you can see it when loading Shockwave apps...slower...less "sturdy"...
Nowadays you can buy "plugins" for Flash that bring some of the dekstop features Director has.
Real 3d engines are popping up for Flash. it's a matter of time Director is obsolete.
No let me rephrase: Director has become obsolete.
