Multimedia, AV The sweet smell of competition is lingering in the air. That sweet smell which indicates that somewhere in the vicinity a company is working on actually improving a product so we can all benefit. This time around, it's Adobe, delivering the first Flash 10.2 beta. Prime feature? Complete hardware acceleration of the entire video pipeline - fully cross platform, cross-form factor. Cross-platform! There's a catch, though.

I don't understand, though. Couldn't they have done the same or similar that Gnash did for 0.8.8 as mentioned in this Phoronix article? http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODUzOQ

They _could_ have. They still _might_.

The real tragedy is that AMD, Intel, and Nvidia haven't cooperated yet to create a standard framework... Not a surprise, mind you.
