LXer: Could Adobe be open-sourcing Flash?
Published at LXer:

Over the years, Adobe has become more Linux friendly. First, Adobe released an excellent version of its Flash Player for Linux, and, more recently, the company launched a version of AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) for Linux. Now, however, with Strobe, its just announced Flash framework, Adobe looks like it may be getting more open-source friendly as well. Strobe, which will show up in the 3rd quarter of 2009, is an open framework for creating SWF (ShockWave Flash) server-side players. With Strobe, content creators and Web developers will be able to easily create sites that host their own video.

It will not happen. Too much greed. Besides, even if at one point they do release it, it will likely be under a special license that won't let you do anything with it.

Just use gnash, it has much more future, I'm using it from now on.
