Well, since we're talking about Flash, Adobe has decided to not support the Linux version of Flash.  In fact, updates have happened to Flash and the existing Flash package available through Adobe hasn't been updated.  This means that users who are still using Adobe Flash are now vulnerable to known security issues and bugs.  Gnash, the FOSS Flash solution, is still being developed and is probably a better solution.  I just hope that HTML5 becomes the "standard" soon.
