Ironic Adobe FreeBSD advertising

While reading a fascinating interview with senior contributors about the improvements in FreeBSD 7.0 at the OnLamp BSD Dev Centre, I couldn't help but notice a certain problem with the page:

OnLamp BSD Dev Centre article on FreeBSD 7.0

Can you see it? I'll give you a hint: it starts with an "A" and ends in a "dobe"! Yes, Adobe is advertising their Flex framework, on a website dedicated to an operating system they refuse to support!

Just for more fun, if you click on their advertisement on your trustworthy FreeBSD box as I did, you're told you need to download Adobe Flash. Clicking on that link takes you to a page where they tell you that "We are unable to locate a Web player that matches your platform and browser".

Little hint Adobe, don't advertise your products to people who can't use them, even if they wanted to.
