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.

Because.

I have 8 GB RAM in my desktop machine and I run lots of things at the same time, including several virtual machines for development and sandboxing risky stuff like P2P. I wouldn't settle for much less.

I somewhat agree with you, though. It would be enough in almost all cases to have a 64-bit kernel with a 32-bit userland. For some weird reason non of the distributions offer the option to use a 64-bit kernel for their 32-bit versions, AFAIK.
