I maintain that it is NOT a coincidence that flash rhymes with both
trash and crash. However, I'm quite happy with 10.1's hardware
acceleration support under certain operating systems, which is very
useful for watching espn3.com live streaming of world cup matches...

If only espn3.com's rss feeds weren't such crap, we could actually
access it using mythnetvision (for those w/the appropriate data
service provider, anyway).
