Yahoo, MSN, AIM are replaced by GAIM. MS Office has been replaced by OpenOffice. GIMP replces photoshop. But what about Macromedia Flash? Is there a Linux replacement for that?...

    In short, no.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Macromedia provides standard linux Flash support on their website. The installation is very easy. Works well for me .

    Your probably thinking about the "Flash Player" plugin. However, Macromedia does not make a Macromedia Flash program for Linux. But there is a program that will allow you to use it. Its called CrossOver.

    It runs many other Window applications as well. Unfortunately, you have to buy it...but who usually buys software these days?

    Well codeweavers is just a modified version of Wine and therefore not a "replacement". Although it works well...

    Try Flash 4 Linux (open source)
