I feel your pain.
I love seamonkey too.
The previous thread you refer to, was mine.
I'm on your side.
There IS NO future, that we seek, from my
I keep waiting on one of the "boy geniuses" on the list
to save our seamonkey running flash.....
But, as the list knows, I'm old and jaded and do
not have much faith in the future of Flash, from
a linux perspective. But, I think it's a game of
"chicken" as Adobe would be foolish to loose this
market; so I'm hoping that Adobe blinks and decides
to support a future for Flash that works with the
open source community's requirements.
I would not wager on what is to be.

There should be ARM-A15 embedded boards that are cheap and abound.
Just put one on your net (less than 5 watts and less than $200 USD).
and you can run X on the A15 and display the (flash)application onto
your old Amd or intel desktop. I do a lot of work with embedded
processors, and *Everybody but Intel* sees the A15
as the future, even AMD is getting new religion.......
Ubuntu has installation media for the ARM-A9 family now
and they are making a major push for the A15, currently.
One way or another, the 'flash cat' will get skinned.
(ps somebody much smarter than me will figure out
something cool for us commoners.......methinks).
That's why Linux rules and microsoft drools.
