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 ?

I think everybody else gave pretty much all the answers. I am a developer by trade and use VirtualBox sessions a lot, and often run 2 or more VM session while testing on various platforms.

Not to mention that I find leaving application open and simply switching to them much faster that start them up over and over. So with 6 virtual desktops available, I run 10-20 applications simultaneously very often. So being able to use the full 4GB or more is great - after all, I paid for it.
