    Can somone whine more?
    PC users have been downloading Flash each time they had a new Computer for years. Just get over it. Since some people might not use Flash (e.g. my mom) Apple might just have decided they want people to download it if they need it. You know, Apple thinks HTML5 is 1337 and that stuff.

    Bad move. HTML5 is still infancy. Flash is not going anywhere.

    Funny because Flash player can update automatically and ask user to install when it's ready.


    If they start blocking JAVA/Flash on MAC then Good luck!

    Also apps that use other technologies won't be allowed in the Mac app store. So no Adobe air, Flash or Java apps.

    Time for the big switch to Windows 7 (Or Linux Ubuntu)? In my opinion: Yes.

    Thank god I am on Windows where I can do whatever the heck I want with my PC.

    And it looks like Apple controlling MAC app store developers more and more.

    Apple are not hindering accessibility to Flash, they're just not bundling it with their Operating System which they have every right to not do. Windows has always been like that too.

    Developers in this case have nothing to do with anything.

    This is the most overly-dramatic post I've ever seen. I'm not trolling here, I promise, but this is REALLY stupid. Apple doesn't like Flash. Okay. If you want it, you are free to go download it. If you're too stupid to know how, I guess it sucks to be you. And even then, you can just ask a friend or grandchild to help you.

    I meant Developers who submit their Apps to the MAC app store. Did you read the rules of submitting the apps?

    Dude shut up, it's not bundled with Mac anymore, it's not bundled with PCs either.
