Re: [POLL] To continue 64 or not?

Well I made the rough decision last night and switched back to 32b.
After reading some benchmarks it didn't look like 64b was going to
benefit me much. This is a home desktop computer so the 32b will fit
me fine. Just a shame to give up the extra functionality.

Perhaps in a few years I may try 64b again when more libraries and
software bundles are packaged as 64b. Until then I thought that it
would be nice if things "just worked". I maintain a couple of
slackware boxes, and it would be nice to finally have one box that is
extremely low maintenance.

Thanks to all for your opinions,

gnumeric 64bit native works on FC4/5. So I suppose it works on Debian
AMD64 too.
Abiword, Koffice - no idea.
