I hope I will never need it. But if I do, it is great when it's there.

Adobe need to be more proactive about supporting multiple arches now that ms is pushing silverlight with the moonlight open source implementation.

I've been using 64bit version of gnash for more than year now and I'm quite happy with it. Even if adobe releases x86_64 version of flash player I won't use it. A year ago I'd probably install it without hesitation. Today... I'll stick with gnash. :)

swfdec is more compatible than gnash. At least according to my last experiences with gnash.

I've tried swfdec a while ago. It worked fine on most sites I usually visit. Swfdec also seems to be more lightweight. The only reason I've stayed with gnash is agg. IMHO it offers better quality than swfdec rendering engine.

gnash displays gray boxes where flash should be...

swfdec doesn't work at all...

flash + nspluginwrapper works, but not optimally...


How/when can I get this?

Yea, right. All those years. Now "only" native 64bit Sun's Java, he he ;)

It'd be interesting to know why big companies does not care in such irritating way. Honestly, if groups of amateurs* can write quite compatible, native 64bit replacement, the original company should be able to do it faster and cheaper.

*by amateurs here I mean people and companies without access to code of original product, nor experience in the team that created it.

If you need 64bit java plugin use icedtea from java-overlay.

It's not a problem like "I can't run this". It's rather about "Our company have to write apps for 32 bit java, or do not supply web version. Or go throught two completely separate test blocks". It's just... not serious? And Just as I've said, I know there are quite good replacements. If the task is so hard the Sun and Adobe has such problems, how did they came to life?

icedtea is no replacement, icedtea based on OpenJDK1.7 from sun, actually, when you install icedtea you download and compile it.

In the situation of a big software seller, the only question is "does Sun officially supports it?". If no, it is only a replacement.
