    Had to click the link to realise it is about Adobe Flash and not something that is doing in SSD's Apple style.

    This lack of Flash has got in my way twice recently. Very annoying.

    Glad to see it go but glad there is an opensource Javascript tool (https://ruffle.rs/) to allow some historical stuff to be preserved and seen all nice and safely in the browser (heck it polyfills if you just add the script to the site!).

    I know none of these flash tools/games are super important but its a big chunk of the late 90s/early 00s culture that would be lost otherwise.

    I would argue the IP camera interfaces, weather station interfaces and "The Flintstones The Untold Story" are all super important.

    100% agree.

    Luckily I don't have a need to install java on my personal machine and haven't for at least 5 years.
