[News] 64-bit Flash for GNU/Linux to Return

Hash: SHA1

What's the future for Adobe's 64-bit Flash?

,----[ Quote ]
| Windows, Mac OS X and Linux 64-bit versions 
| are now in widespread use, and software for 
| the operating systems is following suit. So 
| it may seem a bit backward that Adobe 
| withdrew its only 64-bit version of Flash 
| Player.


Adobe says 64-bit flash is coming

,----[ Quote ]
| Adobe had a version of Flash which ran on 
| 64-bit versions of Linux while Windows 
| users were stuck in 32 bit. This week it 
| seems that rather than releasing a 64-bit 
| version for Windows has, in its wisdom, 
| pulled the Linux version.


Adobe moves mobile Flash from rhetoric to reality

| Also due to get Flash Player 10.1 are 
| Palm's WebOS, Research in Motion's 
| BlackBerry OS, Nokia's Symbian, the MeeGo 
| version of Linux from Intel and Nokia, and 
| Windows Phone 7--though not at that 
| operating system's debut, Murarka said. 
| Many companies will pre-install Flash 
| Player 10.1 on their phones through deals 
| Adobe is hammering out, but in the case of 
| Google, those with Froyo phones will be 
| able to download it directly from the 
| Android Market. 



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.


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)
