Should I switch to 32 bit FlashPlayer?



When I installed my 64 bit version of fedora, I thought I'd go 64 bit
all the way, even with FlashPlayer. The problem is there is no yum
package available and you have to check when a new version is
available which, of course, you don't do too often.

Today I ran into this article:

http://www.itworld.com/security/88683/linux-windows-or-mac-you-need-patch-adobe-flash

and it seems a new security patched version is available in 32 bit:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

IĀ suppose if I had the 32 bit version installed, yum would have
installed it automatically.

So, I went here:

http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html

and saw, from the date on the downloaded files, that there was an
update for my 64 bit version released... on the 13th of November. Is
it as updated security-wise as the 32 bit version?

I'm considering moving to the 32 bit version. Does it seem like a good
idea to you?
