No Flash on Future Linux

Adobe will stop distributing Flash Player as a standalone releases for Linux after they released 11.2 later this year. The H reported that they will only provide Flash via Google Chrome browsers by the use of PPAPI or Pepper, but somehow, Mozilla is not interested about this work.

Adobe will continue to provide security updates for the non-Pepper versions of Flash Player 11.2 for Linux for five years after its release, so hopefully within these five years, Adobe can rethink about their decision and correct it in the future.
