I have to disagree there. Just about everything works great in 64-bit
mode for me. Both in the fedora 11 that I've been toying with and my
Source Mage installs. Everything has been working great.

My xen box is 64-bit and runs all sorts of virtualization stuff, no
problems there either.

Maybe you're doing something wrong? :P
