"What's just as surprising is that this new alpha release of Adobe Flash Player 10 64-bit for Linux is both fast and stable. You just don't expect that from alpha software. Usually, alpha programs run just long enough for you to say "Yeah, I see what they're getting at," which is then followed by, on Windows, a system crash or on Linux or Mac OS X, an application crash.

"For me, this alpha program is actually running better than the released Adobe Flash Player 10 on Linux. I'm quite serious.

"To put it through its paces, I installed it on two different Linux systems. First I put it on my openSUSE 11 running on my Lenovo R61 ThinkPad. This system is powered by 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor T7500 and has 2GBs of memory and uses an Intel Mobile 965 Express chipset for graphics."
