Flash No Longer Available?

Has anybody tried to get Macromedia Flash lately? The link
has not worked in about 2 weeks, have they discontinued support on this and no longer allow it for download, if so what do us linux users use?

how strange, when I first clicked on your link the window prompting for download came out as normal. Now when I click nothing happens.
