Well, 3 years before the worlds biggest CPU hog goes down. Yhen they might have sometime to optimise their other resource hogs.
With great power comes great responsibility!

A lesson Lenovo has not cared to learn yet.

And biggest security hole in the history of (consumer) software industry, next to Android.

Androis isnt that insecure, but I cant vouch for it security either. Its ok. Java should go next to Flash for biggest secuirty flaw.

Amen! Ten years ago, I was using Flash in Ubuntu (Gnu + Linux) on 2.8 GHz Pentium 4. It was kinda miserable, but I was patient and determined to ditch Microsoft. Flash in Windows on 500 MHz Pentium III seemed better! After experiencing their product of such low quality (Linux Flash Player), I wanted to ditch Adobe. Also, Adobe's PDF operating system is very miserable, which helped repulse me from Adobe. (Yes, I see PDF as an operating system, as complex as virtual machines such as Java and "modern" "Web" browsers.)
