Does 64Bit Linux have all 64Bit Packages

As there are 64Bit Linux Distros available

I wanted to ask if the Linux is 64Bit all the packages on it are 64Bit.

Can you tell me a link where a list of 64Bit Packages is listed.

There are a number of pieces of software that have not been fully ported to 64 bit. Of course, is there a particular need it *MUST* be 64 bit software?

Every package (that I've checked) in my 64 bit Ubuntu is "ELF 64-bit LSB executable".

There's no 64-bit Wine. (But anyway it wouldn't run normal win32 executables if it was 64bit!)
