We are coming along, bit by 64bit, java was the last missing piece..
Who is trying to turn the clock back here?
That's not the point. It would perfect to have everything for 64 bit. We
have not, and we need those tools.
Living without them, or with them affected by serious issues (flash not
working properly, adobe hanging, java not working yet) is just a
nonsense for me.
Plus, having them working out of the box was a big added value of SuSE,
partly lost in 10.3 and probably not back in 11.0, for what I read (not
an official comment on this!).
| All users of the "it should just work"-kind should just use 32-bit. I
| think the dual arch DVD9 should default to 32-bit installation on 64-bit
| hardware - so we don't have n00bs running 64-bit without even knowing
| wondering why they can't get their homebank to work with Firefox.
This is the most stupid reason i ever heard...
No, it's not. Many users just don't know/notice the difference between a
64 bit and a 32 bit system, especially among desktop users. They just
use what the system installs or put the 64 bit version because it's so
cool to use a 64 bit version. Then they complain about lack of
functionalities, and the responsibility is attributed to suse, not
certainly to sun, adobe or whatever else.
I realy cannot see what on earth this has got to do with it....
Windows never succeeded to create a wellworking 64bit version..
Linux has, besides the nonsens you write there is the ice tea java 1.7,
which works allright enough..
Java is _part_ of the problem. There are knows issues with flash and
adobe reader as well (see bugzilla). On that side the problem is far
from being solved.
