PC-BSD "iXsystems announced an agreement with Adobe Systems that will allow the next version of PC-BSD to have a Flash-enabled browser available on a default installation. The Linux version of Adobe's popular Flash player will run on PC-BSD using FreeBSD's Linux compatibility layer." In other news, snapshots of the development branch of PC-BSD are now available and built three times a week.

RE[3]: native Flash

Sure, it's possible. There are really only 3 major BSDs: Free, Open, and Net. And if you really want cover 99.99% of the BSD market, add in Dragonfly. I would think there would be a way to release a plugin that runs on all those BSDs.

A better way would be to write the flash plugin using Java, so then it is truely compatible cross platform - one code base, many targets, its just a matter of bundling the plugin in the right packager.
