This is very fascinating, someone has managed to get Flash 8 (no, not the player) running on Ubuntu Linux. I made a harrowing attempt at this a while back, and managed to get a buggy Flash 6 running, but that was a long time ago and wine has improved a lot since then.
I’m going to make a (futile) attempt at switching temporarily to Ubuntu while I’m not buying a new copy of Windows XP for my new computer in a few days. The only thing really holding me back are random programs I’m completely dependent on. With wine maybe I could just avoid buying a copy of XP until it’s dirt cheap when Windows Vista has come out.
Eh, who am I kidding, I’m writing this very post in Windows Live Writer. I won’t last twelve hours.
