    Default Adobe Kills 64-Bit Flash For Linux

    Flash needs to die in a fire.

    http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/f...r10/64bit.html

    The Flash Player 10.1 64-bit Linux beta is closed. We remain committed to delivering 64-bit support in a future release of Flash Player. No further information is available at this time.

    With the huge security hole in the existing 64-bit build they didn't have much choice. Funny how Adobe just seems to be backing up most of Jobs comments in reguards to flash. They say he is talking out of his ass but yet they keep proving him right.

    That's just brilliant.

    I hope that HTML5 takes over sooner rather than later.

    They must have a hell of a programmer there if they can't even write 64-bit clean code.

    Hey it's only been 64-bit out for about 8 years now. Stop rushing them.

    Vote to add hardware video acceleration (via VA-API) to Flash on Linux.

    Default Flash tests?

    Perhaps phoronix test suite could run a preformance test of the Flash alternatives and/or comment on their status of completion... a little promotion of the alternatives and tracking of their growth.

    Damn. I found that 64-bit Flash generally worked much better than the 32bit equivalent in npviewer. Hopefully they turn around and actually push out a full release rather than a beta, it didn't seem like they were discontinuing 64bit development entirely.
