Adobe releases Flash Player 9.0.151.0 after all

Adobe has released version 9.0.151.0 of Flash Player to avoid letting down 
those users who for certain reasons can't update to the current version 10. 
This includes the users of Microsoft Windows 98, Windows ME, Mac OS X 10.1 
to 10.3 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4. According to Adobe, version 10 
does not work on these systems. Adobe had initially planned to discontinue 
its support of the series 9 versions.

Since updating to version 10, I have come across a few websites that
cannot find, or use, version 10, and keep demanding that I download the
'latest version'.  I think I may ditch 10 and go back to 9.
Curse you, Macrodobe.

I had one &hotplace of a time getting rid of 9 as the Flash9f.ocx file was 
locked and even after I ran the un-installer and rebooted it was still 
there.

I had to go into Safe Mode then remove the Read only attribute and take 
ownership of the file in my Admin account then I could delete it.

I then used Secunia Online Software Inspector to see that it was really 
gone:

What version is it that Adobe puts the alert in your face when you boot? I 
don't recall that happening the past but I am a very sparse user of Flash 
Player and never install it on my default browser Fx. I was sort of taken 
aback when I booted this guest XP Pro SP2 machine a bit ago and the first 
thing greeting me was this big popup demanding that I upgrade Flash Player. 
I only have it installed for IE and IE wasn't started when I got the popup. 
Rather bossy.

9.0.0, 9.0.1, 9.0.2
My shop is moving to PB9 and is about to deploy with 9.0.0 build 5507. How stable is this runtime environment? I assume 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 are better, but that isn't always the case. I'd like to convince folks here that going out with a .0 release is a bit risky, but I haven't found any issues with 9.0.0 yet that require us to go with 9.0.1 or 9.0.2. Should I feel comfortable that 9.0.0 is fine, or are there solid reasons to go with 9.0.1 or 9.0.2 that I haven't found yet? I'd go with the 9.0.1 release - the latest EBF. I haven't personally taken 9.0.2 for ...

Maintenance release 9.0.2 from 9.0
I currently have InfoMaker v9.0 installed. No maintenance releases have been installed since base program installation. If I download and install the current release (9.0.2) will this also update everything that was included in release 9.0.1, or do I need to install that one first? Sorry for my lack of education here!

Upgrading from 9.0.0 to 9.0.2
We are planning to upgrade from 9.0.0 to 9.0.2. The documentation states that we just need to run dbupgrad and then archive the transaction log and start a new one if we do some replication. Is it as easy as this? I can just rename the transaction log and then delete it. Could you share your experience if you have done this already? We are concerned that we will have problems with synchronization when we do this upgrade.
