        Ok, you can find youtube boring, but most of people don't. So,
let's think about democracy. The main problem, in my opinion, is what
users want and use... because you can end with a "correct" piece of
software that nobody uses because it doesn't serve people's purpose.
And it's sad to make all this effort to result in nothing.

        And I thank you of course. I'm not just complaining like a
baby. I blame Adobe for not releasing the sources and for being *much*
slower to release the 64 bit plugin. Adobe flash programmers should be
too incompetent to take so long to release a damn 64 bit plugin... it's
like Sun and their non-existent 64bit java plugin.

        It's very sad how the entire market is stupid to depend on only
one company like Adobe (Flash)... or Sun (Java)... or Microsoft
(Windows). I'm pissed of about those companies and their monopolies.

        In the end, I think the user is a victim, Adobe is the "evil"
and Gnash developers are heroes. But it shouldn't be this way.
