Multimedia, AV Not too long ago, Apple added the Video Decode Acceleration framework to Mac OS X, allowing developers to get low-level access to hardware H264 acceleration. Adobe was quite thrilled about this, because they claimed this was needed for Flash video to become hardware accelerated on the Mac. This feature's been in beta for a while now, but yesterday they finally released it as part of a regular Flash Player update. Caveat: Apple's support for this framework can be a bit sketchy.

I'd love to see the most current version ported to the N900 too (which I don't own but would love to) and it may happen with the successor to that device.

However, I don't look for Adobe to be the least bit interested in mainstream desktop Linux support anytime soon. The mobile space is where Linux shines the most to software developers; after all there are more Mobile Linux users than desktop/laptop OS X users, and given the steady climb it may soon overtake Apple's combined mobile and desktop share altogether.

As much as I enjoy using OS X, that is a day I'm eagerly anticipating. I personally think Linux is truly at home on the mobile platforms -- phone, PDA, PMP, and tablet.
