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.

...is the f'ing problem with Adobe? Seriously? 64 bit is a problem? Really? The fact that the architecture has been commercially available for, oh I don't know, 6+ years apparently makes no difference to them?

I mean, of all the laggy, crappy, feature-bloated applications their team of programmers seems to usher out of the pig-trough year after year, you'd think THIS software house would have been the first to jump on the 64 bit bandwagon. Simply amazing.

Maybe Jobs is right in giving these guys the double-barreled middle finger, with a twist. Maybe the entire industry should take a moment to reflect on the whole "Adobe Situation" and then move on to potentially greener pastures elsewhere.
