EDIT: A number of the Unity Linux developers have added comments. I forgot a few things, and there are some great additions. Be sure to read the comments for a more full picture of what's been going on!
Due to an interesting bug with fdupes (again, something I should write on) I splatted some of my system. While it's trivial to restore stuff because I do proper regular backups, I decided to install the updated rc1 (Release Candidate 1) of Unity Linux.

64bit Linux finally happened for me.
There were a few stumbling blocks, most of which involved the general hesitation I had with stepping away from so much software I was relying on. But now that I've seen how trivial recompiling is, and most especially because Macromedia Adobe Flash has an alpha out for Linux.
Yeah, an alpha. But I couldn't tell. Way back when, there were 32bit betas which were horrific.
Why have I been so quiet here? I've been hard at work reviewing the 150+ issues which have already been placed in the issue tracker.
