The truth is in the middle with Gnash. I'm on FreeBSD/AMD64 so I have no choice. I was surprised how well Gnash works lately the 0.8.4 release works on some youtube videos (it doesn't support h.264 yet) and most other youtube-likes. It still has problems with complicated actionscript sites but it crashes a lot less (less than Flash 9 did for me in linux).

There are rumors that Adobe has a native Flash 10 for FreeBSD in the works:
