Re: any drawbacks to 64-bit versus 32-bit install?

Go with 64 bit.  I have gotten 3 machines with AMD64 processors and I have installed Fedora 10 Preview with 64 bit version and they are working nicely :)  It(64 bit) will make full use of the machines capabilities and if it were not for the flash player and other proprietary stuff, 64 is the way to go :)
As pointed out in a separate thread, adobe has finally stared working on
and has an alpha version out of 64bit version of flash.  Check the
archives for the thread.  So that argument isn't relevant any longer?
If flash is important to you, I think it is until is is proven to be as reliable as the 32 bit version ;)

I have read that html 5 will make flash unnecessary.
Is there any truth to that assertion?

It is supposed to include audio and video elements, but there's not much reason to expect all the parties involved to ever agree on a standard codec which leaves you pretty much in the same shape as needing flash.
