    It's all the hype - (so it seems) so I'm curious as I'm sure the rest of the world is...

    Will you install Flash?

    *Edit*
    Summarization of the pages that follow.

    1) I dont agree to Adobe's idealogy, nor the fact that Flash is the biggest non-standardized component of the web. Can only run (by licensed-agreement) on x86* PC's (and soon mobile, yes). And, for linux currently, its a horrid nightmare... the most unstable binary on any of my systems.

    2) I dont have to really explain why I dont agree with the license, its an agreement between each user and Adobe. enough said.

    3) The more support it gets, the longer it will take to transition to the *real* standard, which will be HTML5 and that is in HEAVY development and looking/working VERY nicely. Continuance to support the Flash ideal is only delaying the advancement of HTML across ALL platforms.

    -----

    in the pages that follow, there are several good questions and comments, but to flame me for my choice to not support and/or agree to Adobe's terms... well, you can pipe that to /dev/null . I'm not changing my mind.

    For those that are objective to my objection, this link " http://lifehacker.com/5416100/how-ht...ou-use-the-web " describes it best. Happy surfing everyone!


    Thanks for all who gave good input, and the poll is just as I expected, I see there are a few additions to the "No" list -- I'm sure you guys use linux primarily

    Yes. Like fash lite kind of gives you a flash experience, the internet without flash is at best "internet lite"

    I'd like the option to disable it. I don't want to use up extra bandwidth to load flash ads and such, it'll slow down the loading of pages.

    I'm not so sure there will be an option to disable it, but I'm sure it'll require an action to make the element load, such as double clicking on it.

    I'd be interested to hear why flea voted no.

    I know its going to probably take up massive resources, but its a capability is just too liberating!

    We'll have to see how it's actually implemented. But from the bits I've seen and read, it appears that things won't "load" until you tap something ... so I'm not sure there will be any reason NOT to install it.

    Hell to the Yes

    Yes. As soon as I can install it I'm going on Hulu. Then I'll show it to all my iPhone friends.

    Nobody actually knows how it's going to work. The only thing we know for certain is that it will be a plugin.

    no, I don't know a site using flash :-)

    I will install it but if it slows the phone down any, it's coming back off

    It won't slow it down. You have to double click, and then it will run... So no flash adds, or nothing... I just hope it's fast enough to load flash videos without lagging.

    Flea, as of now it looks as if you are the only one who won't
