Well, Linux does not depend on Nvidia per se', right?
Even if you card is Nvidia, VB can use any of it's graphics
drivers which (somehow) talk to the FBSD kernel graphics
driver for display. Is that not how things are now?
With respect to flash, many sites are switching to html5.
The opensource flash plugin I used on Linux did not work well,
