Linux Linux on the desktop seems to be the perennial second class citizen, but with Adobe's upcoming 64 Bit Flash 11 beta, Linux is getting a seat at the adults' table. It's being released for Windows, Mac, and Linux simultaneously.

My system has been getting really hot when I use flash on lion. I never had this problem in leopard. I skipped snow leopard, because leopard was working fine for me.


Interesting, have you run iStat Pro to see whether it is the GPU or CPU getting hot? it would be interesting to see what the hold up is.

What are your system specs? (model etc.)

It looks its the cpu. My system is a first gen solid body 15in. mbp. When I run anything with flash the cpu temp is between 160 (71) and 170 (76) degrees and the fans spin up. Without its around 155 (68).

All in all, I think I'm a little disappointed with lion. Leopard worked fine for me, I probably shouldn't have upgraded. Now that I see the future of os x I'm not so sure I'll be sticking with apple through the next os x release.

Instead of geting emotional about the situation how about reading blogs about the situation:

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/905/cpsid_90508.html#main_Flash_Player

And there are many more out there. Adobe has already made it clear on their website that they know Flash utilises more CPU under Lion than Snow Leopard. It is NOT a Lion fault, it is a fault with Flash.

Btw, if you're sitting at 68 Degrees Celsisus then there is definately something wrong with your setup because even my old 13.3inch 2.53Ghz Core 2 would be sitting at around 40-50 Degrees Celsius sitting idle.
