Okay, you lost me.  (and maybe only me) You just now found out the
Fedora comes in 64-bit form?  For the most part anything you can get
with 32-bit you can get RPMs built for 64-bit.  (Within some limits).
And the ones you can't get 64-bit (like flash, etc) you can run the
32-bit binaries without trouble.  I run 64-bit on every machine and have
no trouble.

Recedite, plebes! Gero rem imperialem!
