OK, I followed the link above and was redirected to <http://www.adobe.com/products/eulas/players>. I followed the link to Flash and found: 2.1 General Use. You may install and Use a copy of the Software on your compatible Computer, up to the Permitted Number of computers. The Software may not be shared, installed or used concurrently on different computers. See Section 3 for important restrictions on the Use of Adobe Reader and Web Players. and the restriction under section 3: 3.1 Web Player Prohibited Devices. You may not Use any Web Player on any non-PC device or with any embedded or device version of any operating system. I didn't wade through every word of the agreement, but as far as I can see, the licence everyone is talking about appears not to exist - and this, apparently the replacement, seems to be dated 20060607. Are we sure the licence still bans FreeBSD?
