I had little of the problems described in the original post (aside
from needing an alias for killing flash, I never actually thought of
making one until now). It doesn't change the fact that "Don't install
it." isn't a valid option. I also take issue with the "well use a
supported OS" schtick. I will tell Adobe to provide a FreeBSD-native
release, though it would be nice to know I won't be the only one. I'm
actually going right now to do so. Who's with me?
