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.

No surprise

No surprise for me, such thing happens when you depend on a propietary technology.

I would be a surprise if adobe would had developed a reasonable flash port for Linux 32 and 64 bits, which a lot of times has sucked all cycles to the bone from my CPU(s), and i was forced to kill the browes, no matter which was using flash plug in. And performance "issues" too. It is a "cowardice" to compare windows and Linux flash performance. Mac os i do not know, i do not use it.

It would be nice to have a "flashless" web, just using open standards. Open standards work for all. ;)
