Pretty much the same here.  The only problem I've had with 64bit is
getting flash to work under Firefox.  It's pretty low on the list of
priorities, but it is an annoyance.

All of the audio apps I use run fine in 64 bit (Fedora 14).

Check out the website I've been cobbling together.  It will never be
done, but it's a start:
My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio,
mixing, equipment, etc, is at:
Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer.  Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
