Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris The OpenSolaris governing board fell on its collective sword Monday and resigned en masse after Oracle continued to ignore its ultimatum to appoint a liaison guy to work with it on the future of the open source project. The move was anticlimactic to say the least. Oracle last week leaked an internal e-mail into the wild effectively saying OpenSolaris is dead. The news of the mass resignation, coupled with Oracle suing Google claiming Android infringes on its Java patents, had Adobe's director of open source and standards David McAllister casting Oracle as the New Microsoft and saying "the axis of evil has shifted south about 850 miles or so".

Adobe took those much-awaited improvements away for x86-64 Linux users away recently.

Well, there isn't even a working x86_64 release of Flash on windows yet ;) (And one might say that it doesn't really matter, since we need 32-bit software on an everyday basis anyway, with or without flash)

Not really. Flash is the only 32-bit software that I use (on my computer, anyway).
