Linux WMODE — Flash Player for Linux now supports windowless mode (transparent and opaque). Windowless mode means proper blending between SWFs and the HTML above and below the SWF content.. Windowless mode on Linux requires the latest Firefox 3 to work.
Ubuntu, Debian show that 64bit is 10-15% of the users only... so it's not that popular as you make it out to be.
(but yeah, I'm on 64bit myself)
On debian that may be the case, (not surprising since they were the last to release a 64-bit release, finally debuting in 2007/04/08 vs suses 2003/04/07 ), but on other distro's that number is higher. openSUSE 11 for example on just straight ftp download was:
There is no 64-bit Flash for Windows either. I guess Adobe is going to support that before thinking about a 64-bit Linux version.
Actually, it would make sense to make the Linux version first. 99% of apps on 64-bit Windows are still 32-bit. If you insisted on using only 64-bit apps in 64-bit Windows, at this point you'd be extremely limited. OTOH, people running 64-bit Linux run 99% 64-bit apps, with only very limited 32-bit-only holdouts (Flash being nearly alone in fact). 64-bit Flash would probably get more exposure on Linux at this point, even with its tiny marketshare. Just try to get 64-bit Firefox for Windows. (64-bit IE7 is actually easier to obtain now, sadly.)
