I think the thread should be renamed to "Goodbye Flash."

Sorry, I am not very familiar with HTML so excuse me if these are stupid questions.

Can HTML 5 actually do all that Flash does?

And is the code client based (and therefore available to the user) or hidden (like that in an SWF file)?

Dont worry not at all stupid, knowledge is key!

HTML 5 can do excatly what Flash Does including rendering 3D objects uding WebGL, the bad side is that code is shown to the users as it uses Javascript. But you can always minify the script to make it harder for a normal user to maipulate the script but Hackers/Programmers can decode it though like I can, so...

To hide the script you can always create the user side code but save the information that you do not want that the user manipulates on a foreign database.

 

Basically HTML5 is not just the rendering part of the web but realy is the next version of HTML. What makes HTML5 sepcial because they have added the "Canvas" tag which is basically a spot where javascript can render images at high speed usning the Physical GPU/CPU bypassing the browser rendering engine. For example IE may use DirectX to render the images and other borwsers will use WebGL
 

And to answer your quetions:

Can HTML 5 actually do all that Flash does?

Yes and probably more

 

And is the code client based (and therefore available to the user) or hidden (like that in an SWF file)?

No you can't, although as I said clever engineering can go a long way. Mix client based code and server side code to do the trick. And btw I can open SWF files and download there scripts if I wanted to, so even though it's encoded one can still open an SWF file and decode the script if you have the proper tools (Which btw are provided by adobe them selves).

 

Here is a 3D Tetris game that uses HTML5 to render:

Good thing I didn't invest too much time in learning Flash then. The Trivia minigame needs an urgent redoing that I never did because I did not know Flash. Who knows maybe HTML 5 would do the trick.

That would look awsome in HTML5 Canvas

It's not about looking awesome. It's about not being penalized for long page load times. But it could do with some aesthetic uplifts too :).
