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.

I'd argue that if a random process running in user mode manages to crash the system this way (or if Flash needs more than normal user mode privileges to do its job), something's deeply wrong with the OSX graphics stack (or at least the version supplied in Lion). I'm used to see this kind of crashes on Linux distros, not on "professional" OSs that are sold in bundle with hardware for a hefty price.
