Flash for 64-bit Linux!!11oneoneone

Wow. Hell just froze over. Adobe listened to the community and released a 64-bit version of their Flash player for Linux. It's not bug-free, or so I hear, but it certainly is a step in the right direction.

Get it here.

LinuxWorld 2008 Utrecht

I'm at LinuxWorld in Utrecht today, mostly to attend some seminars. The first one I'm at now is a bit of a disapointment, as it is more about Java, JBoss and processes than about Linux. It's not a bad presentation, it's just not what makes me tick.

Update: Just attended the second seminar about 'covert channels', which was pretty good.

Update: Attending third one, by Microsoft's Hans Bos, right now...
Update: Bos' talk was ok, but even though this was LinuxWorld, Bos didn't use the L-word. Not once :-P
Update: Final talk from IBM's mr. Baht was amazing, almost to the point of asking: "Are you guys hiring?"
