I'm in touch with John Koch who's Adobe relations manager for APAC :)
Maybe we can talk to him and the other Adobe guys I'm in touch with
about having OLPC Ph's localized custom rollout image to come shipped
with the Flash player plugin?
Linux Mint which is based on Ubuntu comes with the Flash plugin preinstalled.
Odds are they'll allow it :)
What do you guys think?
