My Solution to the Flash on Linux Problem

It’s well-known news at this point that Adobe is no longer going to put out updated version of flash for Linux. They’ll just continue to put out security backports for the latest version. In the Linux community, I know this has been a major point of contention and it has definitely made getting flash to work on several different Linux distributions a tremendous hassle. It’s just unnecessary effort. My solution has been simple. I just turned too my favorite tool on Linux, Wine, which allows for Windows applications to run on Linux. While I also use Crossover and PlayonLInux, Wine is still the most effective program. If you install Wine then you’ll be able to install the Windows version of Firefox and install the flash extension which will allow you to view your favorite flash content with no problem. If you’re someone who has been grappling with this problem, try out this solution.
