Well, Real player is still alive elsewhere, to my surprise. I don't know who would use it in their sane mind, but if this is any indication of future linux treatment, it will be a very uphill battle for cross platform media.....

That is something very similar to what I had in mind (but I didn't say). What future for Linux? Is this yet another sign that Linux is going downhill?

No. It's the sign that Flash is dead as a platform. Flash has no future.
