Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Unlike Apple and Microsoft, and despite numerous demands from their users, Linux distributions have been traditionally unable to directly ship the popular Adobe Flash Player with their packages, due to the closed source nature of the software and the restrictive license chosen by Adobe. While it does seems shorter than a regular EULA made by Microsoft with all the legalese that goes with it, it does still restrict redistribution in most cases, and the FAQ seemed to be clear about that point.

Except that in this case, much of the internet won't work at all without it.

LOL. No one of the sites I visiting daily use flash.
Mainly news and programming-oriented stuff, blogs.
And I browsing'em all in iOS without any issue.
I wonder if any useful sites still use flash? I don't play flash games.
