    This is good news!! Move all to 64 Bit  and most of the WinSxS files can be removed. I would love to have pure 64 bit WIndows OS with out the SysWOW64.
    I think, flash 10.1 will have 64 bit support.
    Seems like java for 64 bit is already there http://java.com/en/download/faq/java_win64bit.xml
    I don’t have Java installed in my PC for years.

      Flash for Linux has had 64bit support for over a year without any serious problems. :-P
      It’s still crap in itself though.

    Does it give anything? Is it faster than 32bit version?

      Yes, it is.

      Not only faster, it also allows you to not have to have any 32-bit compatibility libraries, which takes up a ton of space.
