Some commenters have expressed dismay that Adobe has apparently allocated so few resources to the Linux Flash Player effort, namely, just me. I just wanted to assure you all that there are more people officially allocated to the Linux effort in various capacities. I was just chosen to present this blog since I have the most experience, ah, facilitating communication with Linux end users.

Further, it’s interesting to note that when I started at Adobe, I found out that there is a shadow cabal of engineers that very much want to see the current Flash Player run on Linux, and would even try their hand with the current codebase from time to time. But there are only so many hacking hours in the day which is why more dedicated resources were enlisted to devote to the Linux task.

I am presently unaware of any shadow cabal of FreeBSD enthusiasts in the Flash organization.
