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 stardard is perfect, e.g. posix has some open dark corners. With C, if you use a C99 compliant compiler you rarely have a problem. Of course if you develop for windows and want to port to Linux, *BSDs (or vice-versa), you have a nightmare ahead.

As far as i know microsoft's C compiler doe not support C99.I say again, open standards is the best option. Look at IPv4, HTML, JTAG, Ethernet and so on. Imagine the world we leave today wihtouy these standards...
