    Default Adobe Flash 10.1 Beta 3 Comes w/o 64-bit Linux

    Phoronix: Adobe Flash 10.1 Beta 3 Comes w/o 64-bit Linux

    Adobe's Mike Melanson has updated the Adobe Penguin.SWF blog for Linux users and it's not an update on his Linux video acceleration rant, but rather to announce that Flash Player 10.1 Beta 3 has been released. As has been the case with Adobe for a while now, the Linux Flash version has been updated in tandem with the Windows and Mac OS X builds...

    There's some kind of squabbling going on between microsoft, adobe and Mac. Adobe seems to be purposely messingup OS/X by making cruddy player and ignoring linux X_64. All in the name of immortality. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!

    How can it be slow? As for plug-ins crashing, it's limited to Flash because of an XEMBED implementation bug in Firefox or the way the Adobe plug-in is mugling with the X window hierarchy... It would crash when the page is destroyed though. This will work correctly with WebKit-based browsers.

    I start to think that Steve Jobs was right in the end: Adobe guys are just lazy!

    The IPC overhead makes it kind of slow.

    You're joking, right? I seriously hope you do.

    Red Hat people did some measurements and the overhead was not noticeable. I don't remember if that was < 0.1% or < 1%. So it was not considered as an issue. Unless you have testcases to disprove this?

    What's the problem with Dirac, aside from support in existing hardware?
