1. Flash player works on Linux and Edubuntu.

2. A free version named gnash is available and will be integrated in the
Gusty version.

3. I've got personnaly problems to play sounds in flash animations on a
thin client but I gess that persons more clever than I am could solve
the problem.

4. The svg format can be used for animations but I just use it for static images. An app like mandvd could be useful...
