I read today that Adobe re-released its 64-bit Flash player (although a preview version) after a 3 months without supporting Linux 64-bit. Although these are good news, I think I’ll thank Adobe for forcing me into using the free software replacements and stick to them. They might not be perfect, but they are free (as in speech).
I’m using Swfdec on Ubuntu 10.04 & Gnash 0.8.8 on Debian unstable, and I’m quite happy with both. Gnash 0.8.8 and the fix for YouTube was a big issue which had caused me to not selecting it as a flash player in the past, and Swfdec is dead for two years, but still does most of the work (although it works better on Ubuntu than on Debian, no idea why).
