来自Emmy Huang @ 8月底的消息， 8.0最新占有率达到86%，目前快到11月，这个数字估计会更高。
Flash Player 8 penetration(穿过、突破) over 55%
At last, Adobe updated the Flash Player Version penetration page on their website, something I’ve been waiting for basically ever since Player 8 was released… 🙂
I need these numbers to convince(说服，使相信) clients(客户), co-workers(同事) and management(管理者) to develop Flash Player 8 projects and it looks like Flash Player 8 is being adopted(被普及，被认可) quite fast, which is excellent news!
The Flash Player 8 numbers come down to this:
* US – 45.2% – aw附：美国的占有率这么低，值得大家反思（其实不难，积极开动脑筋）
* Canada – 56%
* Europe – 55.1%
* Asia – n/a
Unfortunately, there are no numbers avaialble for Asia yet, but if you are developing for Europe, Canada or the US you now have something to rely on, apart from your own measurements of course.
Actually, as of Feb 1, the number was closer to 60% in the US. The numbers on Macromedia’s site are from Dec. Our numbers put it at 63% right now in the US across major portal sites that we run our 3rd-party content on. Our numbers are more accurate than Macromedia’s b/c they are real-time numbers based on our sniffing on portal sites (i.e. AOL, etc). We don’t release our numbers publically, though, because it wouldn’t provide any advantage to do so. rpmworld’s numbers are even higher (67%) http://www.rpmworld.com/flashVerStats.php
