With the upcoming release of FC6, I'm wondering if anyone can offer their thoughts on the x86_64 flavor. I've seen some discouraging posts about x86_64. I'm wondering if there are positive thoughts about x86_64 as well.

I love the x86_64 on my system.  I built it just as FC5 was coming out
with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor and installed the 64 bit OS.  I have
had no problems at all.

True, there are some things that are not yet 64bit compatible, like the
mplayer plugin for firefox, but those are few and there are many
work-arounds (like using the 32  bit version of the app).

Overall,  go for it.

Thanks Jeff, Gilboa, Ronald and James for all the comments, both good and well maybe not so good. That's exactly what I was looking for!

Thank you!
