Well, you only ever hear the complaints from Linux users. That's because almost nobody *actually* needs 64 bits yet, but Linux forces it onto unsuspecting users anyway.

In any case, Dave has been doing a great job and 64 bit VMs are now included in the major Linux distros. People just need to start using them instead of installing their own VMs. But slowly we're getting there ...
