I have been running 64 bit OpenSUSE for over 3 years and don't seem to
have those problems. The only issue I've had is browser plugins, so I
simply run the 32 bit browsers. Also, I don't think Linux was ever less
than 32 bits, as it was originally written for the i386. You should be
able to run 32 bit apps on 64 bit systems, as I have done.
