My understanding is that there are still fewer 64-bit device drivers 
than 32-bit ones. I don't know. Only computer I've encountered that 
wouldn't run Linux was an old Dell; it would try to boot but nothing I 
tried would get it past freezing. But I'm a bottom feeder, 64-bit 
machines aren't in my price range.
