Re: Adobe releases Adobe Flash Player 10 beta for Linux

They should not need to make a deb package when there is a rpm package and a tarball. RPM is part of the linux standard base, and all distros should be capable of handling rpm's. In Debian you have Alien. Otherwise it's the distros responsability to ship packages for their users. If the ubuntu dev's think the users deserves an Flash update, well then they would make an update. And yes, that's possible even with proprietary software like this.
