So I can't say much bout the 32 vs. 64 Bit archutecture, but I've got 
one of the alternative architectures and must say the free falsh player 
isn't a good bit of software at all. It eats up my CPU with joy and 
makes Firefox and Mozilla highly unstable. But it's a miss I can live 
with, so most Flash movies I stumble over are advertises. In the moment 
I just can think of one site I can't view, which I miss, but it also 
would be great to have flash running, but probably there will be a 
solution soon.
