I don't have problem with Flash per se, but more with the fact that it's such a badly coded program. My PowerMac Dual G4-450Mhz can play large QuickTime and .avi files in fullscreen, including streaming, with no issues and hickups, but a normally-sized YouTube video brings it to a screeching halt and will stutter and hickup.

That's really unacceptable. Flash is a total and utter disaster, and the coders working on it today over at Adobe should be FIRED.

For all I care, the entire world switches to a patent-encumbered uber-closed source Flash replacement written by Adolf Hitler - if it doesn't require a quad core machine just to play a stamp-sized video, I'd be happy.
