Gnash the pathway to better Flash on the web

,----[ Quote ]
| In the Free Software community there are so 
| many differing opinions about everything. 
| From why we should use this distro over 
| another to whether we have to worry about the 
| software running on our cable set top boxes. 
| One thing I think that we all can agree on is 
| that there is a problem with flash. If you 
| use proprietary Adobe flash you have tons of 
| issues. Everything from pages rendering 
| strange and flickery playback to firefox 
| crashing from adobe eating up so much system 
| resources. If you use free flash you have a 
| whole new set of issues from players not 
| rendering quite right or just nor working, to 
| skipping playback at times. Even with all 
| these issues and problems I will present a 
| case that if you choose to use flash in 
| Gnu/Linux you should choose a free flash 
| player namely Gnash.
| [...]
| Some people thing that any software is Okay. 
| That you should just use the right tool for 
| the job. With software it is more then just 
| the tool that works today. We must also 
| evaluate the potential of that tool tomorrow. 
| Adobe has no real potential for us tomorrow 
| other then continuing to annoy us. I hope I 
| made a case that Gnash is a tool that has 
| real use for us today an great potential for 
| tomorrow if we put some energy into it. So 
| please help support and fund this project use 
| gnash and if you can Donate. I know I will.
