“Mac OS X 10.6.4, released on Tuesday, includes Flash Player 10.0.45.2,” MacNN reports. “The problem, says Brad Arkin, is that this version of Flash was originally released for Macs in February, whereas v10.1 has been available since last week and fixes major security vulnerabilities, in addition to bringing feature improvements.”

MacDailyNews Take: Obviously, Mac OS X 10.6.4 was tested with Adobe’s Flash 10.0.45.2. Apple isn’t going to delay their release schedule just because some lazy ingrates decide to issue a half-assed update less than a week before the release of Mac OS X major point update that’s been undergoing developer testing for months. Adobe has become a group of idiotic whiners.
We have a solution to this issue: Apple should stop shipping baked-in Flash components in Mac OS X and let users decide for themselves if they want to pollute their Macs with Adobe’s processor-pinning, fan-spinning, insecure crapware.
You know, Adobe, there’s a time to just STFU, admit defeat, and get to work on the future. Unfortunately, that time came and went months ago.
