Multimedia, AV It's been a very long wait, but the release is finally here: Adobe has released Flash Player 10.1. Since Flash has come under increasing scrutiny, there's a lot at stake here for Adobe. This release is supposed to use far less resources while still being faster, more stable, and more secure. Update: No 64bit Flash player for now - on any platform. The Linux beta has been axed.

What a conflict of terms...

To use these terms...

Faster, More Secure, Less Resources, More Stable

in reference to anything Flash related is retarded. It just ain't so.

Well the CPU does have 'Less Resources' left over when running Flash. It is therefore, as you correctly point out, retarded.

retard - cause to move more slowly or operate at a slower rate


Seems to me like at least some of those terms are applicable then.

Yeah, and many of these are also bullet points on a lot of new versions of software, from anti virus packages to media players and everything in between. Problem is, how the hell does an end user quantify this, especially the more secure and more stable parts ...
