Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

Last time I tried - to use Flash I have to install 32bit browser in 64bit environment:

Ubuntu 7.10 uses non-free flash with 64-bit firefox with a wrapper; I believe the package name is flash-nonfree (and it works great, by the way). My only 64-bit complaint is that I have to use mplayer32 for the wmv9dmo codec.

Other programs I have in mind: Adobe Acrobat, Avast Antivirus, ClamAV

I thought Clam AV was for *nix. At least, that's what it says on their site. Well, whatever; I don't need it myself. And I don't know about Acrobat, but I was using a Linux version of Adobe Reader a few releases back. Linux has good PDF readers, and a number of PDF makers (which I haven't tried).

As for Linux viruses, I have never heard of anybody encountering one in the wild, ever. Tell me when the last time was that you did, and I'll admit that there is any possibility of getting one.
