64-bit flash player - nothing but a dream - Macromedia Flash Player

Can't believe theres not a 64-bit flash player available. The company doesnt even want to anser questions concerning a 64-bit player. I my self use Linux/Fedora 5 and thers not a chanse I would go back to 32-bit just because Windows hasnt evolved enough to support todays 64-bit equipment. Anyway if theres someone who knows a work around to the 32-bit problem please tell me!! The ideal would be if there was a open source flash out there, but thats not likley......

    Not yet .. from what I understand its still in development. Porting to
    64-bit is not all that easy (partly due to how the code was originally
    written and optimised for 32-bit systems)

    I'm sure Adboe won't leave 64-bit alone for long .. not once there is also
    64-Bit Vista coming soon.

    The spec for SWF format is pretty much open already.

    Flash player 9 was only released in January. Why didn't they just write it to
    be 64-bit compatible in the first place? Either they just finished writing a
    ton of code that is full of assembly hacks designed for a 32-bit environment,
    or they really just don't give a damn about releasing the 64-bit version.

    Flash is not a huge application - They should have been able to entirely
    rewrite the entire thing in this time-frame. Their whole argument about not
    open-sourcing the player in the first place was that they didn't want it to
    become "bloated" (not that it would, if they managed the project right).

    Either way, it doesn't look good for the users or for the Macromedia/Adobe
    developers. Until there is a native 64-bit version, I'm open to considering
    any competing app that might pop up. Hmmm... I wonder if anyone's working on
    openSparkle yet.
