since i fear you dont get it again i am going to explain by example rather

lets take a browser that uses the gtk library... lots of desktop apps
i use need the 64 bit version... now a 32 bit browser like e.g. galeon
needs 32bit gtk... so both are loaded... loading one lib 2 times is
overhead in my eyes that is avoidable and proprietary stuff again is
anyways just a workaround not a solution.

disagree again? ;)
