Flash only goes up to version 7 in any alt OS as well. Linux is only @ 7 IIRC. I think Win and OSX are the only ones at current.

As for Java, there are really 2 1.4.x implementations. One is an odin wrapped, the other is a port (from GoldenCode IIRC). One group is working on a native 1.6 release, but I haven't seen news on that in a while, only a bounty offered for it to be produced.

Not that I miss flash or newer java stuff in eCom anyhoo.

Thatīs partially correct. The stable release of Flash Player in Linux indeed is 7.X but Adobe released the Beta of version 9 on Linux and it seems to be up to the snuff but I believe that they still need to iron out a few bugs here and there. See http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer9/

However, since itīs very unlikely that Adobe will port this version to other platforms, niches OSes best hope of use an up to date Flash Player is Gnash but it will need some time to it mature to the point of being usable on a daily basis.
