PC-BSD "iXsystems announced an agreement with Adobe Systems that will allow the next version of PC-BSD to have a Flash-enabled browser available on a default installation. The Linux version of Adobe's popular Flash player will run on PC-BSD using FreeBSD's Linux compatibility layer." In other news, snapshots of the development branch of PC-BSD are now available and built three times a week.

If you have an example of why a "native binary" would be useful, I'd like to hear it.

Many:

- Better support for sound
- More stability
- Less memory and CPU usage
- Less space usage on the CD-ROM
- No hack found on the web to have browsers work seemlessly with the plugin

Using the Linux Compat is no fun at all.
