For the Love of Flash!
If you love the hardware acceleration that has become a godsend from Adobe's latest versions of Flash, jumping the gun on upgrading to Lion might just be a not so great idea at the moment. The liaison between Adobe and Apple has seemed to hit another bump in their so called "relationship". In a recent attempt to take advantage of Final Cut Pro X's not so great appeal, Adobe has offered a discount for those calamitous customers that dove into Apple's latest update to Final Cut on Adobe's own video editing suite.

Some might find that Apple did a little retaliation because in the latest rendition of OS X, Apple has dropped hardware acceleration for flash based programs including a plethora of Adobe's applications such as Fireworks, Photoshop, Flash Professional, and Dreamweaver just to name a few. The most noticeable drop will be for those who enjoyed the gpu working in tandem with the cpu to accelerate flash based videos on the Internet. If that weren't enough, for Adobe veterans such as myself, there are other little tidbits that Adobe has noted here that have issues as well.

In spite of all of the discrepancies between the two companies, Adobe has said that they will be working on getting the new features implemented into Lion such as auto save, resume, and versions into their next update of the Adobe suites. Apple's sales with Lion has been floating upwards with 5 star reviews in the App Store which shows that despite the different lead on their Mac OS, Apple is still finding ways to satisfy it's customers.

Final Thoughts:
Once again our processors will bake a little hotter and run a little harder just to render last night's episode of The Office.

Update:
So it would seem that Adobe falsley claimed that gpu acceleration was disabled based upon one configuration they had. Now that this topic's subject matter has been rectified due to Adobe's own lack of testing, where is the GPU acceleration for the heap of AMD GPU's that Apple has been pushing for as of late?

Apple actively dropped support to screw Adobe or the APIs changed as they often do between major OS revisions?
