Adobe Drops 64-Bit Flash Support for Linux
"Making significant architectural changes" the official answer.
Adobe has discontinued 64-bit Flash 10.1 development for Linux stating that significant architectural changes were being made to the plugin that would add improved security.
"We are fully committed to bringing native 64-bit Flash Player for the desktop by providing native support for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux 64-bit platforms in an upcoming major release of Flash Player," Adobe wrote on their Adobe Labs site.
The 64-bit plugin was first made available for testing two years ago, but a finished, official 64-bit plugin never materialized. It's uncertain what caused this setback at Adobe, but speculation points to Adobe's focus on Flash 10.1.
Adobe gave no timetable for when it would begin development (or redevelopment) on a 64-bit plugin.

64bit flash on linux was trash anywayI've always thought the native 64bit flash for linux was an extremely poor product. I've always used ia32 libs and 32bit flash since I switched all my systems to 64bit O.S.'s (mostly debian)
The 64-bit plugin available in these howtoThis guy howto (with the download) saved me a lot of trouble:
