I don't run 64 bit for desktop simply because there are (were?) some 3rd party packages that haven't made it. Such as Adobe Flash player, Adobe Acrobat reader and Nero Linux.

I have a recent laptop, and it may be 64-bit, but I have never bothered to find out. My guess is that others, like me, simply use 32-bit out of habit.
