    Do you really think we need yet another rich-internet-application-pluign? Flash has already been opened (to some extent at least) rendering it much like PDF, so you can use an open viewer or a proprietary one... SilverLight? Not much so, plus it depends on Mono (and I personally despise Mono and the many trap-holes it still potentially holds for Linux with regards to stuff like .Net specific code and Windows.Forms)

    It would be better if web content developers moved away from flash, or developed content that's compatible with Gnash/swfdec instead

    The Flash 10 crash is related to a firefox 3 bug. It is fixed in Firefox 3.0.2

    I would if I could avoid it. Unfortunately some of my online University courses use flash based sites.

    Flash can crash as much as it wants -- I'm using nspluginwrapper. It's possible to use it on 32-bit systems too. However, I don't experience many crashes on my 32-bit notebook where I use Flash without nspluginwrapper. What are you guys doing?!

    FYI, I don't like Flash so much either, but seriously, it isn't going away soon. There's some very nice content on the web made with Flash and I want to see that. The alternatives like gnash or swfdec aren't really ready yet.
