I run 64-bit both at work and at home (ubuntu [dapper]/gentoo/redhat
[4 and 5].  For the most part, I don't have any issues with it.  The
two biggest are flash and java plugins.  But I have a 32-bit version
of firefox that I run whenever I want to use those plugins.  There's
probably not a huge advantage of using 64-bit unless you have over
4gig of RAM.
