Adobe Flash Player 9.0 Linux

It took friggin’ long enough, but Adobe has finally released a Linux beta of their Flash Player 9.0:

Adobe has (partly) delivered on its promise of supporting Linux by releasing the latest version of Flash player (ver 9.0) for Linux along side that for Windows and Mac OSX platform. The version that is released is still in the beta stage. Neverthless, this is a step in the right direction atleast for Adobe and the multimedia loving Linux users as for the former, it is a good PR exercise and for the latter, it is better access to flash based websites.

Even though this is a beta release, I highly recommend all Linux Flash users upgrade immediately. The last “stable” Flash player from Macromedia – 7.x – sucks ass. 9.0 beta is much more stable than that supposed stable release.
