how long do we have to wait already!?! - Macromedia Flash Player

v7 came out when? 1-2 years ago?!? How long do we linux users have to wait for v9 or even v8 for that matter? For pete's sake, I know Adobe has to accomodate new technology like new cpus and versions of windoze/macosx. But if linux users are always going to be the very last priority under accomodating technologies that change every month, we'll never see another version, ever. I'm worried that with the change of ownership of flash, linux users have been brushed aside and there really never will be a newer version. dammit....

    I share your frustration. I believe Adobe has underestimated the popularity of
    the Linux desktop. I too would like to see a more recent version of the flash
    player made available to Linux users (maybe even release a little source code
    at the same time). ;)

    Any way, I there might be some good news coming for both of us. I saw this
    article on digg.com yesterday. Hopefully it's true.
