I am running 64bit Kubuntu 7.10 and so far it works fine. Flash works
beautifully, and I have yet to have any problems. I haven't attempted
to install a 32 bit program, but I know it isn't too hard to do. The
nice thing is that almost everything is compiled for 64bit. Also as for
performance gains, there really isn't much unless you are doing very
high end engineering programs and stuff. I do it because I have 4gb of
ram, and 64bit is what I need to be able to see all of it. So far it
works very, very well.
