I have Flash 10 x86_64 installed and running nicely. You're willing to
dump Fedora for ESX over flash? That makes little sense.

Flash is a minor piece - however based on what I've read lately around the net It seems that the 386 version is more 'desktop' friendly but I have little solid examples. I'm wondering what folks on the fedora list think of:
a) the claim that Fedora 10 386 is more desktop friendly than Fedora 10 x86_64

Scan this list for the number of questions about making stuff work on x86_64. The short answer is that there is a way to do about everything, but it is less "drop-in and run" than i686. The people who say they never had a problem fall into three categories, (a) real gurus who solve problems so fast they don't notice them, (b) people who happen to do only things that never *find* a problem, and (c) people who want you to think they belong in class (a).

It's not rocket science, but it will be more work for most people.

b) thoughts/experiences, etc per running VM's on top of VMware's ESX Server

Although I heard that using a PAE kernel was going to be dog slow, I actually tried it, and using KVM with virtual machines of reasonable 2-3GB size, it is slower enough to measure but not to feel. I run a bunch of assorted servers and performance is comparable (down at most 4-5% for what I do).

I would say that since you have 64 bit installed you should forge ahead unless it starts to really be more trouble than it's worth.
