I heared rumour about that FlashPix standard will be dropped. Because community don't seem to adhere to it ? Is it through?

The nationwide photofinisher In Canada, Qualex, recently dropped Flashpix. Qualex had appeared to be recommended even by Kodak as a source for Flashpix scanning!
I too am thinking twice about continuing with Flashpix!

I don't think Flashpix photofinishing is a big deal as many graphics programs will create FPX from other formats.
What might kill FPX is the high barrier to entry (server software costs)...unless I missed something, we are looking at $3K to start -- hardly a consumer-level price range.
