Setting up flash on a 64 bit system is tedious and requires the use of 32 bit 
browsers which in turn is also a tedious process.

Also unless you will be working with really large numbers and large 
calculations you probably will not see any benefit with the 64 bit.

IMHO, the process involved to get 64 bit running smoothing to gain some extra 
computations the average user will probably never use, isn't worth the hassle.
