64-bit

Well, I know 64-bit computing isn't new, but it is new for me. Even though I had 64-bit hardware available, I've always installed 32-bit version of the OS (linux on x86_64).

I had to deal with an x86_64 CentOS 3 server and I liked it. It just took some time to figure out how to install 32-bits packages. yum install package.arch (package.i386).

Pretty neat! I just can't say anything about the performance as of now.
