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.

Pepper for Firefox

I hope that this helps push Mozilla to reconsider their decision to reject Pepper; that always seemed to be a petty move to me. If only Adobe would announce plans to do the same for the Flash plugin on Windows. Sometimes it seems that only outside pressure can force Mozilla to fix the problems with Firefox.

If you really want to stop Flash, improve the W3C stuff until it becomes a viable alternative. It's nowhere near there yet, though I would celebrate as much as the rest of you when that happens.
