I'm running OpenSolaris/x86 as guest in VirtualBox on FreeBSD/amd64
for that, since Adobe provides a Flash plugin for this platform. It's not an
ideal solution and pretty heavy on resources, but at least it works for the
very rare occasions I absolutely need Flash support (I usually tend to
avoid sites that depend exclusively on Flash anyway).
