My favorite line from the keynote:
“Users are downloading Macromedia Flash Player 8 at an astounding rate. There have been almost 100 million Flash Player 8 downloads so faróthat is about five million downloads per day. In fact, during the keynote alone, about 400,000 Flash Players were downloaded and installed.”
