This is very interesting news. Adobe initially shunned the x86-64 branch of the Flash player and forced many to run the 32-bit player in a wrapper on 64-bit systems.

Adobe has just updated their player to support x86-64, natively, on Linux (and Mac/Windows). This player still does not support any sort of additional hardware rendering that is present on the Windows and Mac builds. If you don't want to use Adobe's Flash, you can try Lightspark.
