Native Flash for AMD64! Woo!

Adobe have finally deigned to release a 64bit build of Flash player for Linux. Huzzah!

No more stupid mucking about with nspluginwrapper. It’s only alpha, but so far it’s working nicely for me. It’s much more stable than the nspluginwrapped version; so far it hasn’t crashed even once. YouTube and Google Analytics both work, as do all the Flash games I’ve tried so far. Some of the flash games were having issues with keyboard access via the 32bit version.

If you saw my last post on how painful and frustrating the silly 32bit under 64bit dance is, you will no doubt be as happy as I am that you can now watch cartoons about cats via the Internet in 64bit.

Because that’s what it’s for, right?
