Write a letter to Redmond, they usually pay good if you
are willing to propagate their opinion. :-)

I didn't say that FreeBSD's "Flash" support is crap, but in my
opinion, "Flash" itself is crap as long as (a) it is mostly
used to pollute the web and annoy its users, (b) used in a
manner that often leaves no way to get around it and (c) it
isn't a standard.

Of course those who invest their time to make something work
on FreeBSD that the original inventor had not designed to run
on FreeBSD deserve a big "Thank you, good work."

Because "the right way" always depends on what someone is going
to do with a computer, his way may be the right way for him, but
the wrong way for e. g. me.

Thinking and ivesting time for learning is - for some people - the
only way to get through life. They entirely depend on others who
(re)install their PCs, attach their printers and get things done.
In the result, those people say: "Wow, I'm so clever, that was
really easy! I'm a Program Manager!" (I really met a person who
called from himself as being a "Program Manager".)
