Good post. I'm glad somebody here gets it. Saying "Flash must die" isn't going to make it happen. Even if it's Apple that says it.

I certainly don't mind if Flash dies a slow death and is replaced by better alternatives. Meanwhile, I don't want to use a browser that doesn't support Flash. :\

That's what I did too. This was one of the rare times I thought the higher end Mac was actually worth the extra money. If 3rd party RAM was currently cheaper, I would have gone low-end.
