yes, that was what i was gonna mention too...

it's been previewed, beta'd, released, then pulled back from release, etc...

i think for some reason they don't use the same codebase for 32bit as for 
64bit but a fork, which is a stupid idea, imho.

alot of problems were there last time,... bad networking code, video slowness, 
100%cpu usage... etc...

yes, adobe has a very bad 64bit history
