Adobe Flash Player 10.1 now officially available for download

While not a huge fan of Flash myself, at least on the HTPC, I can’t argue with the mass appeal and shear amount of Flash based content available.

If you do use Flash on your Windows based HTPC via Hulu, Youtube, or other Flash based streaming services make sure to upgrade.  GPU hardware acceleration makes a world of difference on Atom\Ion and similarly underpowered CPUs.


Well look at that — Adobe’s now officially serving up Flash Player 10.1 on its download pages. If you’re anything like us, you’ve been running 10.1 since it hit Release Candidate status a couple months ago, but if you’ve held off the upgrade brings some much-needed hardware acceleration to the mix, as well as other assorted performance enhancements and improvements. We’re curious to see if the various issues with Broadcom Crystal HD netbooks have been resolved in this final version, and Mac users will have to wait for the "Gala" update to see any hardware-powered boost on their systems, but it’s nice to finally see Adobe ship this thing. Let us know how it goes in comments, yeah?
