I *do* have trouble with Flash on 64-bit ubuntu 9.10 (from the official
repos). Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Sometimes I just get a
blank space where the action is supposed to be. I have yet to get a
handle on the circumstances of it failing but it does seem to be more
likely if the browser (FF) has been running for a while.
Not exactly production-ready from my POV. Of course, even on Windows, I
find Flash to be a glitchy, crash-prone piece of malware.
