What are your plans for Flash on OpenStreetMap, as I can't view it on my AMD64 linux? Bruce89 21:30, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

There are no plans for Flash to be compulsory for any aspect of OSM! It can just be used to provide an alternative for certain functions, e.g. editor (where several choices exist already.) Different environments have their pluses and minuses for different users (e.g. I can't use JOSM on my Mac with OS 10.3)... by providing the maximum variety we open up OSM to as many users as possible, of many different skillsets and abilities. --Richard 21:39, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
What about upgrading to 10.4, it seems lik java is available there? Or am I incorrect apple support java 1.5 mac os x? Erik Johansson 09:53, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
No, you're right. But I try to only go for alternate upgrades of OS X... there's a limit to how much money I want to give Apple. ;) --Richard 10:04, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
Aha.. I was abit worried there since I just bought a Mac too.. ;-) Erik Johansson 17:39, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
"Upgrade" to Ubuntu then!, Java 1.5 is 3 clicks away! Bruce89 16:53, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
How, I thought you needed to install things from Erik Johansson 17:39, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Heh... sorry, I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Mac-since-System-7 user, I'm afraid. :) --Richard 21:55, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
I was joking, sort of, I used to be a windows user mainly until March last year. Bruce89 09:09, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
(Incidentally, you might want to have a look at Gnash.)
I realise that Gnash exists, but I can't be bothered to compile it. I will wait for a Debian package. Bruce89 22:02, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
