Apple responds to absence of Flash on MacBook Air

Apple has responded to an inquiry on the absence of Flash on the new MacBook Airs:
We’re happy to continue to support Flash on the Mac, and the best way for users to always have the most up to date and secure version is to download it directly from Adobe. This will also apply to all Macs in the future, though there may be some models still in the channel with Flash pre-installed.
Considering that Flash has been the source of many security problems and system crashes, having users to download the latest version may be a good start after all.
