interesting, Flash20 warns after installation that there are issues with sharing a machine with RealPlayer11
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

That warning isn't new, at least to me. I have an XP PC here that I acquired from a friend. He had RealPlayer installed.
I got the PC in April 2009. Every time I update flash, I get a warning about Real Player.

I haven't updated flash since I pulled the PC off the network in  2014 so I don't remember what the exact warning was.
