As the page is generically named, and Fedora is a project with a strong
emphasis on F/OSS, I would suggest the page should more prominently
discuss and advocate F/OSS alternatives (gnash and swfdec) and position
the Adobe plugin as a fallback for cases where those solutions are not
sufficient. Also, it should refer more specifically to the Adobe plugin
when saying things like "Flash is Non-Free Software". WDYT?
