    If that article is truthful then that is quite bad on Apple's part.

    Perhaps this is why many posters are reporting poor flash performance on Snow Leopard.

    It's ok for people like us who check tech websites alot, but what about Mr Joe Public. They will have no idea that they might have an issue and will not think to upgrade flash. This is where the problem lies and why I suggested that it is quite bad on apple's part!

    How are people supposed to KNOW that the secure new version they already downloaded once, must now be downloaded again?

    This IS a mistake to give an asterisk about.

    (Flash is so bad, maybe Apple should let Flash updates get pushed through software update. Or at least make a clear offer for an opt-in on that.)
