Well, I've started to download the f11alpha DVD. I am not going to try a 
cross architecture update, as described in phoronix. I'm not that far on 
'nix (ok, a sad attempt at a pun; well, maybe I am, as I don't use anything 
but Linux). 

I read about the experimental flash, which Matthew mentioned. I would 
rather go with that than do the "minor edit". There will be enough stuff for 
me to configure to get it set up like my present x86-32 system. If the 
experimental 64-bit flash doesn't work well enough, I can always try the 
edit.

Sheesh! I can't believe that I have had a 64-bit system, hardware-wise, for 
so long and never even knew it!

It really should run faster, shouldn't it? At least I will be using the CPU 
to it's full potential, and with programs made for it.
