Don't like it - but Flash nearing ubiquity, tough?
Used to be that absent Flash capability web-pages provided an alternative non-flash version.
It doesn't seem to be so any more, I can't even see the special offers at my supermarket without the latest Flash 9.
It is not even as though alternative non-Microsoft and non-Adobe alternatives were possible or available.
This is written from an aggrieved user of an Elonex One T+, (or Trendtac 700 EPCMaplin Minibook, Silverstar, Yinlips Micro PC, Sub Notebook, 3k Razorbook, Bestlink Alpha 400, HiVision Mininote) that has a Linux MIPSEL OS that Adobe declines to compile their Flash-9 for.
If Adobe don't choose to do it, tough.
Probably this affects UK more than others, because of usefulness of BBC iPlayer, now dependant on Flash 9.
If Apple choose not to allow Flash, then Adobe will begin to know how I feel.
More importantly - key players should, or might, try harder to use open software solutions.
