Signature drive: Shockwave for Linux

A SuSE user e-mailed Macromedia about porting Shockwave to Linux and got an encouraging reply: send enough requests (say, a few thousand) and the demand for the port would be considered sufficient.

So, without further ado, I point you to the request form. Sign away! In the interest of desktop agnosticism you may put a combination of kernel/glibc version, though really only glibc matters.
