[OT] Shockwave on Linux

As a general rule, Director makes Shockwave files (.dcr) and Flash  
makes Flash files.

What's really confusing is that swf stands for 'Shockwave Flash', and  
I seem to remember that some simpler Director projects can be exported  
to .swf as well as .dcr.

Brain overload time, and I can remember having *exactly* the same  
confusion when looking into Flash & Director authoring. :-(
