Windows 8 ARM Won't Support Flash

We already knew that the bootloader on Windows 8 ARM Tablets would be locked. It's been confirmed that legacy apps won't run on ARM tablets either. Now you can add Flash onto the list of things that Windows 8 tablets won't support. No Flash support on tablets isn't a new thing — it's somewhat surprising that Apple hasn't patented it yet — but Microsoft's indicated that the version of Internet Explorer on Windows 8 Tablets won't support plugins such as Flash, further hastening its demise at least in the tablet space. On the x86 desktop side, Flash will be supported, but not if you're using the Metro interface. [Electronista via Lilliputing]
