-Yes. Even though Macromedia doesn't provide a 64-bit version of Flash, there are
-a couple ways to get Flash working.
-</p>
-
-<p>
-First, you can use a 32-bit browser like <c>mozilla-firefox-bin</c> or
-<c>opera</c> with the 32-bit Flash. After emerging the -bin package of your
-favorite browser, install Flash by doing <c>emerge netscape-flash</c>.

-
-<p>
-Second, you can use a 64-bit browser such as <c>mozilla-firefox</c> with the
-32-bit Flash plugin by emerging <c>nspluginwrapper</c>, a which lets you load
-32-bit plugins on 64-bit browsers. Install your browser, <c>netscape-flash</c>,
-and then <c>nspluginwrapper</c>. The wrapper will automatically detect and setup
-Flash for your browser.
+Yes. Just <c>emerge netscape-flash</c>. Adobe has provided a 64-bit Flash plugin
+starting with version 10.0.22.87.

-OpenOffice versions prior to 2.0.4 do not build on 64bit systems, so you have to
-use the 32bit binary version, available in Portage as
-<c>app-office/openoffice-bin</c>. If you feel brave you can <c>emerge
-openoffice</c>, but be aware that the 64bit version is not yet tested out
-enough to be considered stable.
+Yes. Run <c>emerge openoffice</c>. It may take several hours and use most of
+your system resources. If you don't think your machine is up to it, you can try
+installing the precompiled binary, <c>openoffice-bin</c>.
