Actually, I recently upgraded to 9.04 on my amd64 box (Dell Latitude
D630), as well, and Flash works perfectly. Previously, in 8.04, if I
had an MP3 player open, Flash couldn't output sound but that's been
fixed in 9.04. I also agree about the snappiness; it feels much more
responsive than 8.04 did.

I will say that the upgrade forces you to 8.10 before you can go to
9.04, which screwed up my NVIDIA drivers for a time. However, this was
the only snag in my upgrade.
