Default Are you using 32-bit or 64-bit linux?

Since there was a QOTD asking if we are using (going to be using) Win7 in 32-bit or 64-bit I got curious about linux users. Most people seemed to favor use of 64-bit Win7 - myself included. However I dual boot Win7 RC 64-bit with Fedora11 32-bit. I use Fedora most of the time, Win7 is primarily for gaming. The reason that I use 32-bit linux is because I'm under the impression that there's inferior driver availability for 64-bit linux and some programs (I can't think of an example now) are not there yet or are buggy for 64-bit linux. So I'm wondering what the community thinks. Do you use 64-bit linux and not have the troubles that I fear?

I prefer 64-bit Linux OS as I find it more stable.

Main problem what you can face with 64 bit linux operating system is compatibility. All you need is to make sure your system is having as much RAM as required at least approx. 4 GB to make it compatible at certain extent.
