I signed it. You might want to put the URL up on other *nix forums to gather additional support. I'll try to pass it around as well.

I signed the petition just now. I agree that Shockwave should have a Linux plugin.

Signed.

I can't believe as strong as the open source world is becoming that Macromedia would stall on crossing over Shockwave.

Yep, I signed. At this point I have absolutely no respect whatsoever for Macromedia. IFF they were to port Shockwave player to Linux/Unix, I would certainly reconsider their popular interactive internet solutions.

Dude, honestly, who signed as "Linus"? And I even got one of my highschool teachers to sign the petition! He's not a Linux user by any means, but we made a deal where I'd sign one petition if he'd sign another, so
