64 bit flash works on _some_ hardware, not on all. That is why it is
still alpha.

When the beta 64 bit Flash came out I tested it on some machines: of
four or five machines all worked fine but one, identical new Ubuntu
(not Kubuntu) installs. I think that the problematic machine was AMD,
I don't really remember. Adobe then pulled the beta and returned 64
bit Flash to alpha.

So 64 bit Flash might work for you and me just fine, but on other
hardware it doesn't.

Pixies must have kept the gremlins out of my little laptop.

Adobe's (http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/) test page says I
have version 10.1.53.64 and I trust it to be the correct one.

And works nicely, thank you very much.

well so do I on my 32-bit system, I think the 64 here is just a counter
not "type"
