One of my friends have recently bought the new MacBook Air this weekend and yesterday i was checking it out and noticed that it haven’t got the Adobe Flash Player pre-installed! and like me, he too wasn’t sure that whether Mac always came with preinstalled Flash?! or we have to manually install it later by ourself? Anyhow when I opened the download page for Flash there was a message saying try again later..
But latter doing some searching I came to know that there is a sort of fight going on between Adobe and Apple due to which nowadays the Apple products doesnt have Adobe Flash preinstalled! alrough according to Apple, it is supporting Adobe Flash and says that current version can be downloadable from the Adobe website. Others might draw some consprirational issues/conclusions.
It might be a co-incidence (although an interesting one) that the news regarding the squabble between Apple and Adobe is hitting just before Adobe MAX kicks off!
Is it bad or is it good? I think for Adobe its surely not a good news because its much harder to be a industry standard when you are just an optional download incomparison wich a whole operating system!
But still anyone who is interested in using flash can download it like we did just like the lovely firefox which although doesnt come preinstealled but most of the people still use it. So it means, Flash has gotten itself onto the non-Apple software boat!
