I can't agree with that, but i guess it works at least.
I use firefox as my browser or sometimes seamonkey and konqueror and the problem i have with flash is no sound or messed up sound that hangs with an irritating noise.
Now this is an old bug in flash that never been fixed, but i can restart the browser or go to private browsing (porn mode) and back and it works again.

That's not a problem I can ever remember having.

Con says he started developing again on linux kernel because he read this on xkcd
Hmm... I've just built my own kernel with this patchset. There is a significant fire-up, but on my configuration flash 64-bit still freezes while mooving mouse on full-screened HD movie Luckly, I don't watch movies via flash
But as of now, I got virtualbox running smoother Thx.

I built the patched kernel the other day........I'm assuming it was the patch that gave me the option of 10000Hz timer, since I don't ever remember seeing that as an option? LOL

I went ahead and used that just to see if it broke my system. I guess an uptime of 3 days says it didn't. Various things like boot time seem a little quicker with the patched kernel.

Heh, I was not so extreme I use 2000Hz only timer... For now, all seems to work perfectly... The notes about this timer clocks stands, that this "overclocking" may be dangerous for some drivers, so this option is not recomended for production use We see in the future, how it works... Maybe with the next kernel I try some higher option

That option has been there for as long as I've been building kernels (over 10 years now). It causes the capacitors in some systems to emit an audible whine.

I would choose CONFIG_NO_HZ for a tickless kernel instead.

Sounded promising. But statements from Youtube today indicate it won't last:

That's too bad. It works great on the videos that support html5. I should look into how my Iphone does youtube without flash. I haven't been limited on the videos I could watch there.
