OK. I'm macromedia project manager in charge of Flash. I see 500 bsd users
who want flash for bsd. My techs say its ~200 manhours [optimistic
estimate] to do the port, proper release engineering, documentation, etc.
Would I do it? Hell no, it additional exposure to flash just isn't worth
it to the company.
Basic math: 10k$ to port. say, 10000 users to gain. Can Macromedia expect
revenue from their products to justify it? Unlikely.
Unfortunately, BSD users are just *too damn small of a user base* to care
about for a company that wants to take money. Get used to it.
