| Syntheway have introduced Harmodion for 
| Windows and Linux operating systems. They 
| describe it as a Drawbar organ and free-reed 
| aerophone instrument emulation, such as Reed 
| organ, Harmonium, Accordion and Bandoneon 
| among others.


Flash Player 10.1 Now Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Today I'm thrilled to announce that Adobe 
| Flash Player 10.1 is now available for 
| Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. You 
| can get it now. Flash Player 10.1 for Android 
| will be coming later this month - the beta 
| release is currently available in the Android 
| market.


WebM will annihilate it, hopefully.


Proprietary Software Traps - Adobe Flash

,----[ Quote ]
| I've been working on a project for work
| involving the re-use of older (6-8 years
| old) PCs and laptops using Ubuntu 10.04
| LTS, with the goal of distributing them to
| some of our tech-impoverished Georgia
| libraries (nothing's firm yet - still in
| the exploratory phase). These were state
| library staff members' computers from
| maybe 2 generations ago and if they are
| not re-used, they'll be surplused or
| discarded. As I was installing and
| configuring Ubuntu, it occurred to me that
| since we would be redistributing whatever
| software we install, we are constrained
| about what we can include when they are
| sent out. Ubuntu, as-is, is all free
| software and all included packages can be
| redistributed freely. However, installing
| Adobe Flash, Sun (or Oracle) Java, or many
| proprietary A/V codecs or device drivers,
| makes it illegal to redistribute.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
