Games using Flash Player
Today we’re releasing Flash Player 14 and the AIR 14 Runtime and SDK. This a major quarterly releases that includes new functionality, bug fixes, and security updates. We recommend taking a look at our release notes or visiting the Flash Player announcement or AIR announcement page for download links and additional details.
Thank you to Jonathan Hart (@jonathanhartsf) and others for the heads up on the recent resurgence of ActionScript on the Tiobe Index. Last month ActionScript broke into the top 20. The June numbers are now out and it’s moved up to the 14th spot! None of this would be possible without the awesome support of our AS developer community, creating and inspiring us with their applications and games for both mobile and desktop platforms! Thank you!
Adobe AIR technology has made it possible for developers around the world to create some of the best and most stunning mobile games available today. You can now use this versatile technology to promote your games to a much larger audience. The new Instant Game Preview capability (for Android platform only) lets users try your game and experience it first hand without downloading and installing the application.
For a quick demo, open this link in your Android browser -
The fact that AIR would allow users to try your games and applications very quickly, chances of your app getting eventually installed increases manifolds. Instant Game Previews are better than video based previews because they let the user actually ‘play’ the game instead of just ‘watching’ it.
For details on how you can quickly create a preview for your game, refer to the following devnet article -
We are extremely pleased to announce that earlier this month the number of AIR applications installed across the world, on different devices and desktops, surpassed the magical “ONE BILLION”* mark! We’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU to our entire developer community! Your work allowed us reach this spectacular milestone.
The Adobe AIR platform is stronger than ever. The technology which originally started with the desktop, now powers almost a hundred thousand unique applications on desktops and mobile devices. These applications and games are published on app stores across the globe.
During the last few months, several device manufacturers have released Intel Atom based mobile phones and tablets. Momentum has been developing in the market for x86-based Android tablets, and with Intel committing that there will be 40 million tablets shipping by the end of the 2014, we knew the time was right to deliver native AIR support.
We have been listening to our AIR developers and we are very excited to announce support for packaging of AIR applications for Intel x86 based Android devices. This support will allow AIR developers to directly target the x86 Android platform, providing the best performance possible from their AIR applications.

I recently bought an older G4 powermac for $200.
I was tired of all the Ms bullshit. It was easy, I love the Mac, although it does seem a little slower.
I have Mozilla, Open Office, Flash, Windows Media Player. AIM, and any other program you could hope for.
There is nothing I cant do now, except play a few games (But that is why I have Xbox 360)
I have been using PC's since the 286 days. I will Never buy a MS/PC again. I will put up with a few headaches to know that my computer will do ONLY what I want, when I want, and not submit ANYTHING behind my back.

So you're using Ubuntu? i know its kinda hard to get 3-d rendering and what not, but if you're kinda new to Ubuntu, go to help.ubuntu.com and it'll show the basics on how to get started with running applications, playing music files, playing video, burning cd's, etc.. it's also good with instructions such as installing java, flash player, etc... also go to add/remove packages, go to games, and there's a whole bunch of free games you can download and run straight from Ubuntu without having to install plug ins like flashplayer.

Especially with office documents. People could give a rats ass about Windows itself, but they still need Excel and Word for work. Pull out that, things will change a little. What I can see happening, or is happening a little with the netbooks, is people start using Linux or BSD without knowing it. They'll have a computer with point and click, a web browser, flash, movie player, music player, some simple games and productivity software, but won't know what the heck it is, anymore than they know what runs on their dvd player. How many OS X users know what BSD is? Maybe in 10, 15 years, yo
I know aol sucksby BUT_
Its free and I still use it as a browser sometimes. I use the chat rooms and have some favorites saved. Anyways, my pc crashed a week ago and I had someone come by to fix it. He said I might need a new hd, but he managed to get me back and running.
But now when I am on aol, I cant see any video(youtube), and I cant play any of those aol games.
When I go to "add or remove programs" I see that I have some of those versions there.
And when I am using firefox I can see videos and all works well
My twin brother bought a new tower this weekend. We usually play backgammon with Yahoo Messenger. For some reason this won't load for him. We have installed the media flash player--it states successful download, but still not playing. I had him to try and download Java and it won't let him download this.
He is able to use all the features of Yahoo messenger--that we know of--except for games. At the Yahoo site the games platform won't load either.
We have set enabled his cookies and security preference to medium-high.
He was able to successfully download yahoo messenger and the media flash player
