The Flash thing

Adobe and Apple continue to duke it out over Flash, with Adobe evidently complaining to the FTC and/or the Department of Justice, but incase you're worrying that this may spell trouble for other things (i.e. Adobe software on the Mac) MacWorld reckons that you have nothing to worry about; Captivate is coming to the Mac!

But I'm not sure that current announcements should be taken as indicators of future actions and intentions...

Meanwhile, Opera's product analyst Phillip Grønvold tells TechRadar that Flash is important for interactive content, but shouldn't be used to playback video:
But flash as a video container makes very little sense for CPU, WiFi battery usage etcetera – you can cook an egg on [devices] once you start running Flash on them and there's a reason for that.
Hear Hear! I hate how toasty my Mac gets when playing YouTube video...
