    Phoronix: 64-bit Adobe Flash Linux Support Is Back

    Woot! Can't wait to install me some proprietary pluginz. At least I can once again ditch the nspluginwrapper.

    I've been having trouble with youtube html5 h.264 videos lately.

                  We really need to support HTML5 and get done with this!

                    This...and it's about time we reduced our dependency on Flash and rely more on open standards for presenting video content.

                      We and what army?

                      If it stays on Windows, it stays for good (and forever).

                        It goes beyond Linux. There are a lot of Windows and Mac users wanting open standards too. In fact, Apple fanboys are especially ecstatic about promoting HTML5 due to the whole Apple vs. Adobe quarreling.

                          No, there are not. Only the usual geeks (like you and me) know or care. For the rest (vast majority), Flash works and they don't even know what it actually is.

                            I think people care, when they can't use flash on their iphones.

                              I think that people who use ijunk don't have a brain and therefore are incapable of caring.
