Well, at least you don't have to buy that crappie OS.

just a quick question, A while ago i signed a petition for a shockwave plugin for linux is this the same one ?

the one i signed was like a 3 months ago, just checking becuase i assume you can/should only sign once and i would not want to invalidate the petition by signing more than once.

Long-awated Update:

I received an email from Novell a few days ago, and here is what it said:

Quote:
Rob,

Get everybody on your shockwave petition list
to vote in

http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tip/16646.html

Initial votes do not show shockwave in the top 10. See

If you are still interested in seeing a shockwave plugin (possibly both 32 and 64-bit), then make sure you vote.

I have a question. I don't see Shockwave in the list. What do they call this thing? I'll vote for it but I'm not sure what to vote for yet. I guess since I don't use windoze, I have never missed it. I would like to see it though. Then I'll know what I am missing.

It's not in the list, you have to write it in. Select "OTHER" in the second field. In the 3rd field type "Shockwave Plug-in".

Has there been any word or any progress made so far to get Shockwave for Linux? I signed this thing a long time ago but no shockwave yet. Maybe instead of petitioning for shockwave, we should all start writing to the webmasters of sites that use it to switch to Flash. Eliminate shockwave alltogether.

No progress that I know off. Thats a great idea about petitioning website to stop using shockwave, although that doesn't solve my need. There are something that shockwave can do that flash cannot do - like 3D.

My successful workaround so far is to import shared object files from the plugins directory of Realplayer for Linux and symlink them into the browser plugins folder.

I signed the petition. I think, however, that this should just be the next step toward a more universal solution. We should put on the pressure through their paying customers, or the websites that are using their product to deliver content. When paying customers speak, they will listen.

If we did petitions or mass mailings to sites using LUT (Linux Unavailable Technologies), telling them that our patronage of their site depends on them delivering available technologies, they will put bottom-line pressure on the software vendors. Most sites would rather not provide multiple deliveries. They might just switch technologies instead of providing dual services. This would put pressure on both software manufacturers and content providers to make their stuff available to both ms and non-ms worlds.

just my two cents.

What is that a workaround for?
