Just a follow up to this. I just read an interview with the lead
engineer for Adobe's Flash Player team. He says the Flash 9 player for
Linux is expected for early 2007.

Read the interview at http://blogs.zdnet.com/Stewart/?p=96 (originally
linked from /. http://linux.slashdot.org/linux/06/08/30/0531253.shtml )

You can read his blog, called Penguin SWF, at

He did say that they are currently working on x86 based Flash Player. If
you want something else (alternative OS, like BSD or 64 bit or PPC) to
use the Wish Form at http://www.adobe.com/go/wish rather than posting in
the Penguin SWF blog.
