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.

As much as Linux fans hate Flash I think it will end up working towards their benefit through Android tablets.

$200 Android tablets with Flash and decent hardware would fly off the shelves.

I'd presume he's referring to Android using the Linux kernel, not that that helps desktop Linux much.

Linux fans have been cheering on Android, maybe you don't read tech news.
