Unfortunately, the best desktop Flash you are going to get is going
to be for Windows. Not that I like Windows much, mind you, but I
find that it makes a good browser platform and GUI terminal when
used in conjunction with FreeBSD servers.
As for WINE: I gave it up when it went GPL. I have no need for
anything with a viral license. I am waiting for the day when I can
build FreeBSD with a GPL-free toolchain and run without any GPLed
code anywhere on the box. (This day may be coming soon, by the way.
I hear through the grapevine that clang can build the FreeBSD
userland and may not be far from being able to build the -CURRENT kernel.)
