Adobe joins Linux foundation

The Swedish news site IDG.se writes that Adobe has joined Linux Foundation. Linux Foundation has also sent a press release.
I hope this means that Adobe had come to the concussion that their Linux implementation is crap and that they need to optimize it and make an 64-bit release available. It would also be nice if they provide us Linux users with a Shockwave player. I have not too much hope since Adobe does not mention that they have joined Linux Foundation on their site.

Why is Adobe flashplayer crap on Linux today? Well take a look on the CPU-usage when you viewing a page with Flash content.

For now am I using Gnash instead to play flash content on my Ubuntu machines.
