are you serious?
I mean, do you really consider ditching flashplayer for gnash or lightspark to be a viable solution for a company like canonical (dare I say a viable solution at all)?
They need permission from Adobe to redistribute that plugin, and last I heard about that Adobe doesn't want to give this permission...

When it comes to PDFs, I'm yet to see anything that approaches the bar set by acroread. Having said this, I recently discovered an impressingly fast and keyboard-driven pdf viewer that I use for quick & dirt document checking: MuPDF. For that use case, I recommend it over Xpdf, Okular and company. For those who care about it, I suggest PDF-XChange for document annotation and form-filling. It's got a gratis version and (for once) it works perfect under Wine. Forget abot PS trickery, loading documents in Inkscape or nonsense like that.

I wonder though what made Apache2 bork on the 64-bit version, it's basically the only test where 64 is slower than 32.
