Question How stable is x64 Fedora?

Thinking of installing onto x64 machine, and want to know if 64 bit is still shaky or is solid enough for a daily-use desktop machine.

I have been using F8-64bit since the day it was released. No issues that are stability or 64bit related. If anything it is more stable than the previous F7 installation on the same hardware.

It's stable, but in my experience it installs both 64-bit and 32-bit packages... of EVERYTHING. So it takes up twice the space. It is a bleeding edge distro, so you might encounter problems every once in a while, but other than that it's fine.
