FYI Adobe is no longer providing Flash 64 Bit from their web site so if you trust me you can grab it from here :-

http://wildwizard.abnormalpenguin.co...6_64.so.tar.gz

NB I'm pretty sure the reason they don't provide it anymore is due to the large number of security flaws recently discovered in Flash 10, and the fact they are too *#$& to give us Flash 10.1 64Bit.

Like I needed another reason to hate Adobe and Flash. I'm with Steve Jobs on this. Flash can't die fast enough.

I found another link as well, directly from Abobe:
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/l...6_64.so.tar.gz

This is still accessible. I found it linked on http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...player-plugin/

Flash still sucks. I tried some Theora video sites just to see what it was like. I'd say it was around 1/4 or 1/5 the resource usage to watch the same thing as an equivalent Flash. I can't believe how much better HTML 5 and Theora is over Flash. There is no comparison.

Like I say, if these standards take over http://youtube.com and such, the web is going to be a much better place than it is right now. If http://youtube.com switched to Theora and HTML 5, I would not even *bother* to install Flash.

Don't take my word for it, see for yourself:
