    LOL. Reading one of the comments on that page, I couldn't agree more. Though, there are two sides to this argument though.

    So now it's Apple's fault for not protecting their users against flaws that Adobe introduced into their own software?

    To Mr. Adobe: your software has security holes in it, as you've admitted. It is your responsibility and your responsibility alone to get the fixes into the hands of your users. Was it even brought to the attention of Apple that they should be including Flash 10.1 in their most recent OS update, or did you just kick back and see whether or not Apple would include it, then turn around and lambast them after the fact?

    Let's not get carried away. Adobe may have their problems but they're still a great software publishing company who in the past has wholeheartedly supported Apple when there not very many who did. Or have you forgotten that Apple almost went out of existence?

    Adobe will come around. Right now they're acting like a little kid who's been told he/she "can't" do something.

    Regards.

    Haha, I just don't know where all this hatred against Adobe is coming from. I guess it's another fanboy in the making.

    I like Adobe's products generally, but Flash Player for the Mac has been complete garbage its entire existence. That's why people don't like Adobe in general on the Mac.

    I love all their other stuff.

    Well said. As much as I don't like Flash, I respect Adobe for many other things. Outside of Flash, I frequently hear nothing but good things about their design and development tools. While I don't use any of their tools on a regular basis, I've been impressed with them when I have.

    Agreed with the above. Photoshop is very bloated. Way to many GBs for what it does. And uses up way to much of my system resources to get the job done. But in saying that it does the job very well. I quite like the software.

    Flash on the other hand. Now that is a spawn of the devil. Killing it is not enough. We need the mind erasers Will Smith had in Men In Black. So we can totally forget that garbage ever existed.

    I forgot Adobe made other programs (I haven't used/needed to use Photoshop in years as all my photo editing can be done in Aperture).

    I'll rephrase: I wish Flash would roll over and die.

    Oh wait... Stop the presses. We can't release 10.6.4 this week. Adobe fixed more issues with Flash and put it out 3 days ago. We need to hold off releasing 10.6.4 another week so we can put in their update and test it.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    I agree with most Photoshop is probably one of the best at what they do and Flash needs
    to be fixed or buried.

    I will say though that Flash 10.1 DID make You Tube videos on my iMac G5 iSight 30%+ better. No more pegged CPU and no more jerky videos.

    I still feel Adobe has a ways to go making Flash better, but I really appreciate the improvement I am seeing here.

    Most of their other software is First Rate though.

    When Steve Jobs said no flash on iPhone and iPad Adobe came out with Gala flash, it's not bad. Can watch ABC news 25% spike or less, so you know they can even improve on that. Once in awhile you run into a flash video on youtube, 25 % or less. My laptop runs cooler that's for sure.

    I'd like to know what the difference in terms of CPU usage is between a machine that has hardware accelerated flash and those that don't. I notice a difference but it's not huge here (not hardware accelerated here).

    Van, all I can say is on the Power PC G5 (Discrete Video but nothing special) it was 100% CPU PEGGED on every You Tube video making them jerk, pause, skip frames, now it's 70% or less and quite smooth.

    The Intel Mini is more equal to your system but it never jerked or did any of that there. I would have to install the older Flash and get a CPU reading then the new and compare. Might do that later.
