All the screenshots are from thin client.
If I got full 32-bit Ubuntu 7.10 with LTSP5, I can use Flash (with
sound) and Java (on the important educational site).

If I use 32-bit Firefox inside 64-bit Hardy Alpha 4, I can use Flash
(with sound on the server, not on the client).

Java is not working on the important educational site - Java is
installed on the 32-bit Firefox on the 64-bit hardy Alpha 4.

This educational site (our town, population over 30 000, has bought that
service to the all pupils in the town) use Html, Java, Flash and Shockwave.
On the 32-bit Edubuntu I can handle three of them directly and shockwave
But on the 64 -bit Edubuntu I can handle only two of them, no luck for
Java or Shcokwave (maybe with 32-bit Wine/FF, but that option has too
You can test your own browser here for that educational site:
When I got Duo Core Xeon servers I really like to use them on the 64-bit
environment. On my own office I can do that (we do not need Flash or
Java), but on the schools they need Flash and Java - so I have to run
32-bit Edubuntu on the 64-bit machine.
To me that service is almost as bad as Live at Edu...
