I have a dual opteron here which I was originally running with amd64.
However I have since moved over to i386 on this system.
Actually I just purchased another disk and installed the i386 version.
This way I can easily play with the amd64 version whenever I wish.
My main reason I moved was a few applications I use are not yet
available on amd64, in particular openoffice.
I was having a few other minor annoyances I was unable to cure that have
also vanished so moving over to i386. I run current on both versions.
