I've been 64bit on Linux on the desktop for quite a few years now and
have not encountered any issues. 32 bit apps/plugins work just fine on a
64bit system assuming the correct libraries are installed. Things mostly
just work with modern Linux distributions in my experience. 64bit Ubuntu
is my primary desktop at the moment and I can't think of anything that
is broken or unavailable to me because of 64bit.
