Post Shockwave & Linux

the basics behind the post. macromedia recommends that as many people as possible request that shockwave be made available for Linux. by having lots of request for the port it will help them decide.

so before this gets moved to whatever the designated "correct" location is on the forum, I recommend you visit:

Bookmark the page so it will be easier to find later so you can tell others.


Hi Jarl,

Thank you for writing Macromedia Technical Support.

The best thing to do would be to fill out the Feature Request form
here: and have other
Linux users do the same.

The engineers view the wishlist regularly and would consider porting
the player to Linux if enough users request for it.

We hoped this has helped.

Best regards,

Jayem Abania
