Which other feasible flash players besides Adobe's are available? Gnash seems 
to be not production-ready. I think, using some Linux apps via emulation is 
the price of using a "niche desktop OS".

I would really like to see OpenGL hardware acceleration for DFly (and other 
OSS systems), because I think, the "free" Desktops will use it in future 
extensively (see XGL, AIGLX, Xorg 7.1 as a foretaste) and it could  prevent 
the wider use of DFly on desktops in future. But OSS drivers for graphic 
cards seems to be hopeless, at least in the near future :-(
