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.

Actually, uses a large but close to perfectly documented set of APIs which are native on windows and not on other platforms. It explains very simply why it runs faster.

.Net, WPF... All of this is loaded at bootup and optimized on Windows, since parts of the system use them...
