Graphics, User Interfaces Adobe has released a beta for Flash Player 9 for Linux. "While we are still working out exactly how to distribute the final Player version to be as easy as possible for the typical end user, this beta includes 2 gzip'd tarball packages: one is for the Mozilla plugin and the other is for a GTK-based Standalone Flash Player. Either will need to be downloaded manually via the Adobe Labs website and unpacked."

An up to date flash plugin for Linux. Unfortunately, it's still non-free - but at least there is something to use, since there isn't a true FL/OSS equivalent- but we can work on the non-free part later.

At least now I don't have to try and explain to my little one why he can't go to his favorite website to play his flash games, because at 4 he just isn't old enough to understand the whole "Free Software" thing yet.
