I should have known better than to come in here. Flamewar from hell. Whatever.
Personally, I don't give a small rat's ass if any Apple product ever supports Adobe Flash. Linux can stop supporting Adobe Flash as well. Then, Adobe could stay right where it belongs - on Microsoft computers. I mean, we HAVE alternative to Adobe on Linux. And, it really shouldn't be hard to port any of them to Mac - it's a Unix-like, after all. Let Adobe chase after the Microsoft market, and create security holes in Windows, where they belong.
Yes, I'll load an occasional site that relies on Adobe, and the content won't run. No big deal. I'll miss that content, and the site will miss my repeat visits. Fair trade.
The Linux world is growing. Yeah, there's a long way to go to say that Linux even competes with Microsoft for market share - but so what? The Linux world is still growing, and people will complain the site developers that they can't see the content. Eventually, developers will develop with the alternatives to Adobe in mind.
The world is a beautiful place when you don't rely on proprietary shit.
