    One of the reasons Adobe went with a 64bit for Linux was because of all the instability the 32bit one was giving. They explicitly say that on the downloads page, haha.

    So having a crashy crashy solution made a good non-crashy one

    I'd have to agree with RealNC; the beta 64-bit flash player is working a heck of a lot better for me (on Fedora) than that 32-bit nspluginwrapped abortion we used to be forced to use.

    That being said, I'd be even happier to have an open source player that worked reliably.

    Otte, one of the devs for swfdec wants feedback and love. See http://blogs.gnome.org/otte/2008/12/18/on-loneliness/

    It's more stable then older, non-64bit versions. Maybe not on Windows, but on Linux, it works much better (faster, less crashes and less glitches) than "stable" ones.

    So I recommend you use it. I'm on 10.0.22.87 64-bit currently.
