[opensuse] Re: no more flash support?

In any case, what does this mean for being able to view videos on the
web in the future using open source programs?

Flash is being phased out by html 5 video (even Abode is throwing in the
towel) and no longer installed on a lot of platforms. I am not sorry to
see it go- it is a resource hungry and insecure piece of crap.

Open source is the only option that we have that maintains our
freedom. Is anyone trying to develop an open-source clone of flash so
that the internet will remain open?

Gnash[1]. It is in the repo.
