I'm still using x86-32 on desktop due to hardware,
but I will install a x86-64 distro (probably Slackware64) on a notebook to test it.

Use X86-32 and X86-64

Primary Laptop, X86-64, It's been a rock solid performer! Don't see any reason to rock the boat at this point.
The OEM I.S. (Inoperative System) was Vista Entertainment Edition, I just didn't find non stop blue screen very entertaining.

X86-32 On the wood burning desktop, (Athlon "Barton"), laboriously slow but absolutely perpetual.

I have *ONE* desktop computer on which I do everything. I have been a Debian user since Debian 1.2,
except for one year when I could no longer get my printer to work. So I used Windows 7. Since then,
I have used Debian/sid. I switched to x86_64 a few months ago, and I do not regret it.

Apart from the fact that my present computer system refuses to boot from a USB stick, and only
occasionally condescends to boot from a CD-R, I have no complaints about Debian x86_64.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone which runs Android. What its processor is I don't know.

My @_64 is for home use. I do heavy number crunching.

What is my preferred Arch?

Well I just received the email about this poll and I am already too late to vote. Here it is anyway:
I use both x86_64 and x86_32 cause I want more than one machine to mess with. I prefer 64 bit by a long shot.

Some of the posts here have mentioned performance in regard to the 64 bit version. If you are using an application that was written for 64 bit it seems there should be some improvement but it is my understanding that the real purpose of developing 64 bit systems is to prepare for the expansion of addresses (IPv4 to IPv6.

x86_32 and x86_64.
I will soon buy Raspberry Pi, and I install Slackware, Arch and Debian to separate SD cards.

Same situation as me, I'm currently waiting on my raspberry pi to arrive.
