Flash is a big pain IMO. The Flash question has been asked *a lot* of times on this list. The answer usually boils down to "use www/nspluginwrapper" or "use linux-firefox". Both "solutions" are far from optimal. My solution is to simply ignore Flash content. It makes your "online experience" much more enjoyable. This is my personal choice of course. I think it is rather reducing when you have to beg unkind vendors to eventually consider that you exist. I don't think proprietary binary formats have their place on the web. The WWW is an information exchange platform, why would you want to diffuse information around the globe when you know that a lot of people will not be able to decipher it? It's a bit arrogant I think.
