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.

Yes, but again what use has this large RAM for most desktop software ? Especially considering that it's extremely rare that one *single* process uses 4 GB RAM, and that if you just need to run several big processes at the same time, a 64-bit OS is sufficient.

Is this about "my RAM is bigger than yours", or is it actually useful ? [/quote]

Oh let's see, people who do video editing, graphics work, etc. etc. etc.

Me, I use VMWare and make full use of my 8 Gig of RAM. Not to mention 64 bit is more efficient, especially when it comes to crunching numbers like with data base applications.

32 bit is outdated, has been for a long time. It's well paste the time for lazy coders to start coding for 64bit.
