Linux Linux on the desktop seems to be the perennial second class citizen, but with Adobe's upcoming 64 Bit Flash 11 beta, Linux is getting a seat at the adults' table. It's being released for Windows, Mac, and Linux simultaneously.

I really do hope they fix the bugs that Flash has with Lion - play a video using Flash an on the rare occasion the whole screen freezes yet you can move the cursor around (but can't click on anything) thus forcing one to do a hard reset. It really does piss me off give that Adobe has had a good amount of time to prepare for this - Apple made it known over a year ago regarding the new Webkit2 structure, several betas have been issued and an RTM that sat there for 3 weeks where Adobe could have focused all resources solely on that one issue as to make it in time.

I really do wish that maybe an alternative company can rise to replace Adobe because right now their products are completely and utterly shit - their latest rip off being CS5.5 and ceasing to support CS5 customers. In all due respects I've taken the jump and now using Pixelmator, OmniGraffle Pro, Hype and BBEdit - it may not have the Adobe pixie dust but at least they've been written from day one on Mac OS X.
