Slashdot Linux Story | Adobe (Temporarily?) Kills 64-Bit Flash For Linux

"It seems that with the release of the 10.1 security patches, Adobe has, at least temporarily, killed 64-bit Flash for Linux. The statement says: 'The Flash Player 10.1 64-bit Linux beta is closed. We remain committed to delivering 64-bit support in a future release of Flash Player. No further information is available at this time. Please feel free to continue your discussions on the Flash Player 10.1 desktop forums.' The 64-bit forum has been set to read-only."

Very forward-thinking Adobe. Just awesome! You did hear that Google recently announced that their employees can no longer use the one operating system Flash actually works well on, right? You think they'll be the only ones who do that?

Doesn't really matter since Flash is on a death march at this point anyway, but just highlights what nonsense Adobe's latest "one app, any device" marketing crap is.

So long, Flash. Can't say I'll miss you.

I've come to the conclusion that Flash on 64b Linux for Adobe is either:a) is Too hard for them to figure outb) or they are too lazy to careIt's sad to say that Moonlight (aka M$ Silverlight) runs better on Linux than Flash does.
