So I migrated home machines the other day. From an antique P-II to a much more modern Athlon. Suddenly, all sorts of programs (like Eclipse– it rocks when it has enough memory and CPU) became much more usable.
As part of the migration, I decided to clean up a few things.
For one, I switched to using Mozilla full-time. It’s vastly better than Internet Explorer at this point (the privacy controls, and the ability to turn off pop-up windows, are marvelous).
For another, I didn’t install Flash.
Am I missing anything? Curiously enough, I don’t think I am. Flash is, apparently, mostly used for advertisements and (to be blunt) crap that has to be animated because that’s the only way you’d pay attention to it.
Maybe that’ll change in the future. But, right now, I’m living life flash-free and loving it.
Let me know. Is there a reason to have flash installed on my machine?
