Until they release full source code for flash 10 and older steps like that are totally useless.

Not quite the moon landing (MS releasing the entire Windows XP source tree under a decent OSI-approved license); but close enough to seriousness smurf ;-)

It's not a native version of flash on the BSDs or source for the player, but hey... Beats trying to figure it out the hardway, and worry about getting sued along the way!

Hell no... I was just giving an example of something that would be on par with the moon landings importance.

Yeah, I posted on another thread a find about them saying they were releasing the standards documents under "a BSD-like license." Kind of interesting. I think our bitching and whining may have gotten to them. Keep up the good work.
