It seems that Adobe does have an intention of making Flash available for the Linux platform. The news might be a bit late, since the relevant articles/posts are dated May 2006. I posted anyway for those who don't know yet, and to provide some links.
This fact was brought to my attention through a blog post in News.com. And I was able to pull of some useful links:
http://blogs.adobe.com/penguin.swf/ - a blog about tracking the development of Flash Player for Linux
http://weblogs.macromedia.com/emmy/a...irginia_th.cfm - a blog entry from Adobe's Flash Player product manager. It says that the earliest beta version might be available early 2007. Roughly 6 months to go.
