In the News Since it's nigh on impossible to produce accurate figures of operating system usage, we have to make do with figures that provide a rough estimate, at best. One such set of statistics are the figures from Net Applications, which tracks the 160 million monthly visitors to its hosted websites. The latest figures from January 2009 have been published, and they show that the rise of Mac OS X continues, as well as that of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Unsurprisingly, Windows 7 did quite well too.

(again, Adobe's incompetence with 64bit Flash means I have to use a win32 VM to see the crappity animations and youtube videos; I'm unwilling to dirty my 64bit install with a 32bit browser)


I run a pure 64bit Fedora 10 on my March '08 17"MBP. The 64bit Flash 10 plugin from Adobe works perfectly well with 64bit Fireffox 3.0.5.

RE: The Thom's article, I think a slightly paraphrased quote from the genius that was Robert Nesta Marley sums it up nicely.

Cheers,

If adobe has finally released the 64bit Flash player then I can pull that back off my list of limitations. I'm off to check into that now. Thanks for the head's up.

Cheers and Happy Monday
