I don’t get the Linux people (and I realize this is a bit of a generalization). Yesterday Adobe released Flash Player 9 for Linux. A big release and one that Linux users have been waiting for for a long time. They were right to be miffed at being skipped over in 8, but now that 9 is out, they’re up to par with everyone else and are no longer left out in the cold. Adobe stood by their word and continues to support the Linux community even though it accounts for a very, very small percentage of customers. Linux support for Flash is one of their stories and they do a great job.
So what do the Linux users do? Bitch about no 64 bit. Scroll down on the Digg thread and you’ll see plenty of complaints about no 64 bit Flash Player. On my ZDnet blog posting the one comment I got was about how without 64 bit support this wasn’t news.
So here’s my question, what are they going to bitch about when 64 bit support is here? The fact that Apollo doesn’t run on Linux? That it’s too hard to install? I just don’t get all the critisim.
