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.

Free software developers will come up with a solution:

- A common interface between web browsers, the Pepper API and the Flash player.
- Work for good on an alternative to the closed-source now-discontinued Flash player (swfdec, Gnash, etc.)

Too many people need to read Flash content (Flash menus web sites, online videos, online presentations, online chat and telephone, etc.) and sometimes you badly need it and can't wait (e.g. in a corporate environment).
