is 64 bit ready for primetime yet?

This is a question that seemed to have been late by years getting across 
the internet.
The only issues in the early days of 64-bit was in building 32-bit apps 
and with some source not 64-bit aware.

For over 7 years I've been using 64-bit OS's on multiple boxes and 
laptops here and on installs I have done for others. I have 5 up and 
running here 24x7x365 1/4.

It's a non-issue and I have never installed or used 32-bit on a 64-bit box.
As for wireless drivers, I've not had a problem on any of the 5.
