Finally 64-bit Flash for Linux

Adobe has finally released a alpha of its first 64-bit Flash Player. This is in no way too soon. Users running 64-bit operating systems have been requesting this for several years to apparently deaf ears. Until now. Now, all that's left is for them to open source it, but I guess that's asking a bit much. I for one will surely be enjoying my Flash content from my 64-bit browser instead of having to start the 32-bit browser to be able to watch YouTube-clips.

On the other hand, the Gnash project has had a 64-bit Flash Player for quite some time now, and it's even capable of playing videos at YouTube. I suppose that in a couple of years when it's more stable, I'll be switching to using that one instead.
