Multimedia, AV On my mark... Get set... Start not caring! Adobe has announced it plans to discontinue the stand-alone Flash Player for Linux, instead focussing all its effort on the version available through the Pepper API - which, besides Chrome, no one else is going to support.

So, the pepper API will only be used for Chrome. And Adobe will continue to develop native flash versions for Windows & Mac for other browsers.

So, how is this any less work? Instead of having Windows, Mac & Linux versions, they now have Windows, Mac & Pepper versions...
