    This is with non-Nvidia cards, the nvidia driver doesn't use DRI, so it isn't affected by DRI's shortcomings.

    DRI2/Gallium (which is in development), should fix this

    Okay so compiz breaks GPU acceleration but what about other OpenGl programs? What about KDE4 Compositing?

    This also does not make sense. Why is it I am able to have compositing on and play games (native and in WINE)? I thought OpenGL related code is handled at the GPU driver level not the application level. Or maybe they are trying to control a part of GPU memory which breaks everything else, DRM anybody?

It's all very well to say 'its that simple', but when you actively use websites /w Flash as part of your everyday computing, it's anything but simple.

    Of course, the sooner non-free Flash can be ditched, the better. Along with unrar-nonfree.
    oh i disagree.. i used to use sites with flash and crap, but then i realized what a piece of crap flash was, and so i issues i think only 1 command, to end it, i would call 1 command pretty damn simple.

    I think people should help gnash development

    gnash plays youtube well right now, but still need better support for swf8/9.

    I still don't really understand how the Adobe flash player can be so slow on Linux compared to Windows...
    I'm a game developper and I don't really see where is the difficulty in porting this kind of program to Linux. I heard a year ago on the same swf blog, that the port was really hard because of the amount of asm code that had to be ported on each platform. But... It just Flash technology, it's not like guessing the weather for the ten years ahead! We have CPUs that goes incredibly faster than two years ago, the same for GPUs that are specialized in scalar computing, but still, Flash is slow as hell on Linux...

    Don't understand... I hope the guys of Gnash will rock this out in few months!

    Um, just don't use Flash. It's that simple.

    Adobe did open specs for flash, didn't they? I hope gnash gets mature (spec support for ver. 9 at least) and we can get rid of this binary piece of junk.

    I still think that's going too soft on them.
