Multimedia, AV It's been a very long wait, but the release is finally here: Adobe has released Flash Player 10.1. Since Flash has come under increasing scrutiny, there's a lot at stake here for Adobe. This release is supposed to use far less resources while still being faster, more stable, and more secure. Update: No 64bit Flash player for now - on any platform. The Linux beta has been axed.

Out of curiosity, what do you all need 64-bit for on a desktop OS ?


Probably because they want to use their CPU at their fullest: remember that with the new registers x86-64 can bring up to a 20% performance improvement, so it's not only the memory..

Sure, this happens only on very few applications, but it's still annoying to not be able to use your computer "efficiently" due to poor software.
