I am certain you can run flash in linux compatibility mode? I am sure I had flash running on it when I was using it. I could be wrong, but... no, I am always right! ;)

Well, there is flash but it's v6 only.

The other turnoff is that it works only for Konqueror (Firefox and Opera don't like this version of flash).

Using Konqueror, one can browse through most Flash and Java sites (there is a Java package as well)

That's not PC-BSD's fault though... (I'd really like to see Adobe behave twards Foss projects)

Hope Gnash comes upto speed!

Here is the proof:
