Adobe drops 64bit Flash for Linux

Adoibe drops 64bit Flash for Linux http://bit.ly/acbHEM I thought they liked open standards (like Linux) 🙂 Flash is 32 bit currently although browsers are heading for 64bit. Plug-ins and host have to be in the same architecture so Flash will have to be a 64 bit plug-in for 64bit browsers.

ArsTechnica comments:

It’s likely that the push for 64-bit compatibility took a back seat while the company focused on improving support for mobile computing products. Flash’s notoriously poor performance and excessive energy consumption have kept it from making inroads on handheld devices. Adobe claims that the new 10.1 version, which was released last week, will address these long-standing problems
