It is just that newer releases of Flash will not be released by Adobe for Linux. That is not immediately an issue, and it won't become one until websites don't work without features only implemented in newer releases of Flash.
Once it becomes and issue, it might be that a different solution will be available. The Flash included in Google Chrome might be repackaged to work with Firefox, perhaps by writing some add-on or plugin for Firefox as a wrapper. Or perhaps (please let's hope so) Flash will not be relevant any more and we all just use HTML5.
There are also alternatives like Lightspark and Gnash. I'm not sure about Gnash but Lightspark is under heavy development.

On a more practical note I don't like the way Chrome ignores the system theme and imho, Chrome is ugly as hell.
