Multimedia, AV It's been a very long wait, but the release is finally here: Adobe has released Flash Player 10.1. Since Flash has come under increasing scrutiny, there's a lot at stake here for Adobe. This release is supposed to use far less resources while still being faster, more stable, and more secure. Update: No 64bit Flash player for now - on any platform. The Linux beta has been axed.

Hardware acceleration for Flash on Linux is non-existent. I've got VDPAU for Mplayer using Nvidia for my H.264 very recently, so spare me the Jobs is late to the ball game crap.


You're comparing a walled garden of apples to an open field of oranges.
Jobs is paid megabucks to provide above-average, bleeding-edge, psychedelic experience to his customers.

In the GNU/Linux development I don't see this kind of commitment (and you see it from industry attitude to Linux versions)

That said, yes Flash is still bloatware.
