Multimedia, AV On my mark... Get set... Start not caring! Adobe has announced it plans to discontinue the stand-alone Flash Player for Linux, instead focussing all its effort on the version available through the Pepper API - which, besides Chrome, no one else is going to support.

I wouldn't bet on that... Flash player running on top of Windows in a VM sounds like a computer benchmark more than a usable software stack to me ;)

Years ago, back when the Linux flash plugin was utter crap (it was one or two major versions behind the windows counterpart) I was playing a flash MMORPG running the windows version of Firefox on wine, with the windows flash plugin.

An annoying workaround, but still far better than running a whole Windows installation just to use flash ;)

In general, perhaps there's nothing inherently bad with such. XNA games work fine (many on Xbox Live Arcade; or... on WinPhone7 - but then, that's the "snappy" platform)
