Hello there!

Yes, it looks like Fermat's Last Theorem is finally proved.  
The proof was offered by Andrew Wiles, at Princeton.  
I'm afraid that I can't give you a taste of the proof, because 
for one thing I haven't seen it, and for another thing I'm 
sure I wouldn't understand it anyway.  But yes, it looks 
like it's finally done.
