Actually, flash used to run on FreeBSD's Linux compatibility layer; does
that count as "embedded or device" version of Linux? If yes, does the
same go for Wine on FreeBSD?

If yes again, what about Wine on Linux? Even on Linux, win32-firefox
with win32-flash (within Wine) run much better than Linux-flash itself.

Agree here, but "open-source friendly" companies that promote the use
of flash are much worse. As it seems to be, the reason why people want
to use flash on FreeBSD is youtube in most of cases.
