My fun in 64 bit land is increasing all the time!!! Now on my new machine I have:

SUSE 9.2 (64-bit)
SUSE 9.2 (32-bit)
CentOS 4 (64-bit)

I also got a FC3 DVD today and I will be installing it soon.

One interesting benchmark I have so far is "oggenc". Encoding a 8Mb wav file on SUSE 9.2 32-bit took 42.9 seconds with a data rate of 11.7. But on SUSE 9.2 64-bit, on the same machine, takes only 28.8 seconds with a data rate of 17.5! Remember that is tha same machine, same hardware, the only difference is the OS, 32 bit or 64 bit. :)
