    flash would be tricky on the iPhone. how will it tell the difference from hovering and clicking? on most online videos, hovering shows the controls and clicking activates their functions.

    Ok here's my question... How did they get YouTube videos to play on the iPhone when you need flash for that on any other computers? I'm sure if it was done it prolly isn't all that complicated but why couldn't they do that with other flash stuff? And my personal opinion is that apple is waiting for HTML5 because adobe wasn't willing to play with them. I think if apple wants it bad enough they could get it, just at a price.

    youtube on iphone is not flash. its a video format that the iphone supports. youtube converted them for apple, that's why some videos used to say they were not available for iphone at the moment, but i havent seen that message in a while, so i guess youtube finished converting them and does it automatically with new uploads

    I noticed something last night - there were a few videos I tried to play through the youtube app, and it said the video type was not supported. I clicked play again, and they worked! I am sure I was having issues with my connectivity, but I thought that was interesting that it said that instead of communications error.

    Yes, linux is the iPhone language. For the YouTube question, YouTube was ported for iPhone so it didn't need flash, at least that's what I think.

    Objective-C is the language. Not Linux. At all.

    I believe a modified version from 10.5.3 for the new 3G iPhones. The iPhone does not run Linux.

    It seems that you are confusing operating systems and programming languages. Linux is NOT a programming language, it is an operating system (actually a kernel). iOS (based on Darwin, which is NOT an operating system, but just a KERNEL) is a Unix-type system, just like Linux. The main language which was used to program Linux and iOS is C and C++, however on iOS and Mac OS X, Objective-C also used. Same for DOS. Now DOS has been totally incorporated by Wondows, as a subsystem. Yes, the core parts of Windows are based on DOS, however, they don't use DOS. Deadicatedartist is right: the command prompt in Windows is not the same as the original DOS one (former is called cmd.exe in CWindows\system32, latter is called COMMAND.COM in C).
    Sry if I'm not right @ some certain details, but I'm a Linux user.

    Completely useless revival of an old thread with some unrelated yet somewhat related input... Windows NT was known to be an acronym of Windows "New Technology"... the developers that made Windows NT possible were OS developers for Digital which ran the VMS operating system... Bill Gates brought in 10-20 or so developers from Digital to help with the evolution of Windows and they decided they'd take a stab at Digital with V+1=W, M+1=N, S+1=T.... VMS - WNT (Windows NT)
