32-bit Flash causes stability problems on my 64-bit Linux system because the 32-bit compatibility libraries don't work as well as the native libraries for things like sound and video acceleration. A 64-bit plugin would be useful to me.

A more appropriate questions is, does anyone need 64-bit for anything? Yes, if you do computationally intensive tasks like video editing or scientific simulations. I prototype code for my calculation server on my laptop, where I run Flash.

32-bit Skype is also a thorn, though it only needs the sound system.

I also hope that HTML5/SVG and SIP/SILC/etc. become more popular.
