Slackware64) - very nice, but...

"Adobe is actively working on the release of a 64-bit native Flash Player and will provide native support for Windows, Mac, and Linux 64-bit platforms in an upcoming major release of Flash Player."
"64-bit Linux users can use a 32-bit version of their browser with Flash Player, or they can use a 64-bit browser with Flash Player by using a compatibility layer"
