Good point... this has already come up in the conversation at
http://www.slashdot.org/ on the topic.

If your site checks for specific browsers, rather than specific
capabilities, then it would be good to add Linux to the list of possible
environments. It's *possible* to automatically route these people
elsewhere, but then you'd be opening yourself to email.... ;)

Rephrased, if your site page has a "If you can't see the animation then you
don't have Flash" advisory, rather than a JavaScript platform-detection
routine, then this may make it easier for audience members on Linux boxes
to enter, thanks.
