Using Adobe Flash and other 32-bit applications on 64-bit Linux

You realize its silly to have to jump through hoops like this to run 64bit linux.

Sun Solaris does a lot of things wrong, but they've done 64bit right. 64bit kernel, 32bit userland. If you need more than 4GB VM, compile the app for 64bits.

Remind me again about the great performance improvements I get with a 64bit 'ls', and a 64bit 'firefox'? <pft>
