So I'm curious what everyones' thoughts on 64-bit x86 architecture are. A couple weeks ago I moved from i386 Gutsy to AMD64 Gutsy on my laptop (2.0GHz AMD, 1 GB RAM) and it's noticeably faster and just generally better this way. The only issue was flash support, which there's a script on the Ubuntu forums that installs 32-bit firefox and flash. This next comment get me flamed, but oh well, 64-bit Vista is a good OS. It's stable, loads relatively quickly on my old AMD dual core with 2GB of RAM, and plays all the games I want to play without issue.
So I think 64-bit, after 4 years, is finally ready for the desktop market.
