You should read the Flash Player's EULA ... I, for example, am not
allowed to install or even use the flashplugin as an OpenBSD user on
most of my computers. (One may only use it on Windows, MacOS, Linux and
Solaris.) On a side note, I happen to know that the plugin would
actually work in Linux emulation on OpenBSD... of course, nobody
officially ever tried that.

Not very interesting. That, and what Jack wrote about its lack of Ogg
support make Flash simply the wrong tool.
