Whoops! Let me clarify. Sorry, I used the wrong term. By "forego", I
meant testing exclusively on Gnash with the XO as opposed to testing
with the Adobe plugin too.

The Adobe Flash is the standard by which Flash content should abide
with, and what we're hoping to do here is to attract additional Flash
developers & content creators to target the XO. If Flash 7 & 8 content
authored by Flash content developers are going to perform in
unexpected ways in Gnash (bugs), it's going to frustrate and turn off
regular Flash developers.

Because of the difficulty of switching constantly between Flash &
Gnash browser plugins, I've currently installed Flash 10 RC plugin
instead on the XO dev unit with me (will upgrade it to Flash 10 final
when it comes out) and will test browser content against it, and have
decided to test for Gnash compatibility on the standalone Gnash that
runs outside the browser.

For browser content, I'll be testing Gnash with a Fedora 9 VM on my
desktop (Latest Sugar-XO OS is based on Fedora 9).

Hope to contribute to Gnash by helping to test for bugs and providing
Flash developer feedback!
