When I visited the Adobe site to install Flash, I came across their ADOBE SOFTWARE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT [sic]:
1. "Authorized Operating Systems" means the desktop and standard-laptop versions of the following operating systems:
1. Microsoft Windows operating systems (including desktop and standard-laptop PC versions of Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT, ME, XP Home, XP Professional, and XP Tablet PC Edition, but specifically excluding Windows XP Embedded, Windows XP Media Center Edition, and successors);
2. Macintosh operating systems;
3. Linux operating systems, but specifically excluding any embedded version of Linux; and
4. Solaris operating systems.
2. "Adobe" means Adobe Systems Incorporated and its licensors, if any.
3. "Software" means only the Macromedia® Flash® Player, Macromedia® Shockwave® Player, or Macromedia® Authorware® Player and third party software programs, in each case, supplied by Adobe therewith, and corresponding documentation, associated media, printed materials, and online or electronic documentation, and all updates or upgrades of the above that are provided to you.
For the avoidance of doubt, no embedded or device versions of the above operating systems, or any other operating systems, are included as Authorized Operating Systems.
How interesting. Windows XP Media Center is not allowed to run Flash? Is everyone breaking the EULA? Or is there another version for this specific OS?
What about Windows Vista? I am running Windows Vista Ultimate, which incorporates Windows XP Media Center Edition functionality. I am in breach of this EULA?
