iXsystems announced an agreement with Adobe Systems that will allow the  
next version of PC-BSD to have a Flash-enabled browser available on a  
default installation. The Linux version of Adobe’s popular Flash player  
will run on PC-BSD using FreeBSD’s Linux compatibility layer.

Having Flash player available by default on PC-BSD will allow users to  
view Flash content on popular sites such as YouTube, Yahoo Video, and  
Grouper.

"The agreement with Adobe will allow PC-BSD to have a browser with Flash  
working immediately after installation of the operating system. This makes  
great strides toward the PC-BSD project’s commitment of having an  
easy-to-use OS with the modern browsing experience users expect and  
deserve," said Matt Olander with the PC-BSD Project.

"Flash technology is the standard for developing and viewing rich internet  
applications. Users of PC-BSD as their day-to-day OS know that the  
inclusion of Adobe Flash player as a default option will enhance their  
user experience and expand the number of applications they can  
successfully run on their PCs", said Michael Lauth, CEO of iXsystems.
