Even in the best of times, the enterprise market typically lags in adoption of new software platforms. Although enterprises typically refresh hardware every two to five years, it often takes longer for them to update corporate standards for OS platforms and software applications. Regardless of when or how often they are buying new machines, many enterprises are still relying on Windows XP, Microsoft Office 2003, and Internet Explorer 6. Don’t expect enterprise or B2B Flash web applications to disappear in the next three to five years.

Good industry overview of HTML5.

If there’s one language you need to learn in the next year, it’s JavaScript.
