I originally didn't want to butt in on this, but since I've been 
eyeing 64bit for a while now, and you claim not to have any problems 
with it, I would just like to ask one quick question:
My main problem with installing a 64bit version of Kubuntu so far has 
been flash. Are you saying that flash is working fine for you? I 
don't have much use for it, but in those cases where I need it, I'd 
really like it to work...
