    Phoronix: Adobe Flash 11 Beta 2 Is More Stable, Faster On Linux

    For those that missed it, this week Adobe released a second beta of their forthcoming Flash 11 platform for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows users. The first Adobe Flash 11 beta was christened by mainline 64-bit support after the earlier x86_64 Flash "Square" beta had fallen months out of date, but there's also other features to the 11.0 release...

    I have a fast CPU and that's why it is running smooth. But it also resides inside a laptop and whenever I watch a fullscreen flash video I hear the fans going pretty high.

    Also, they have still the second monitor bug:

    It has nothing to do with the window manager and on VGA output it mostly works, but on HDMI output this is really bad.

    And this is why:

    Beause, no it isn't faster. It's still horrible as the beta 1. With horrible I mean, watching a low resolution video is not working fluently on an i5 480M@2,9GHz with HD 6550 on fglrx. Extreme tearing and large stutters. I think it renders everything in Software and draws everything to screen with no hardware acceleration whatsoever.

    Makes me wonder whether it loads some libraries dynamically on your Ubuntu or whatever you test it on.
    I'm running an i5-460m@2.53GHz and the integrated intel ironlake graphics. I can watch 720p and 1080p video perfectly smoothly, no stuttering, no tearing. sounds like some sort of ati issue. I don't believe flash has any hardware acceleration on intel either... (only on nvidia). Running fine here.

    I've run flash 11 on fedora 15 and on arch linux and they both worked the same.

    Flash is like the Internet Explorer<7, and should be killed with fire.

    I can use HTMLv5 to watch YouTube's non-Vevo shit and Soundcloud for music.

    Think of all the pointless games and adds you'll be missing...
