    Yeah, I've been reading "we'll catch up x86_64 next release" or "soon" for quite some time now. Let's just say I'm not holding my breath.

    I knew both were coming to Flash 11.0 (even somewhat confirmed by Adobe themselves), but I didn't know there was a 10.4 coming before that.

    Flash 11.0 also fixes the fullscreen video/composite performance issues that have been around for years.

    Me neither.
    "We're told" and "it appears" coming from adobe means little to nothing for me. I have to see it to believe.

    Not many companies care about linux unfortunately. There is still a very widespread belief that all linux users are hackers that don't want to pay for software.

    Precisely! We need to somehow explode that myth as I'm sure Linux users are willing to pay for quality software that WORKS AS ADVERTISED. As long as such software is well maintained and the maker accepts bug reports and addresses such bugs in a timely manner we'd then be satisfied.

    Such streaming DRM is pointless abuse of CPU cycles anyway (especially on linux, but also on Windows & Mac OS X).

    You should let the media companies know that. With that fact in hand they'll surely stop adding DRM to their streams.

    A Russian did hack the binary though and get it working, lol
    I'm not russian...

    I'm not so sure that's true. Why would RHE and Suse exist? There seems to be a need for Linux professionals who can maintain web servers. Either real or virtual.
