I enjoyed this review. I was hoping the results would be much better than what FC2 is at on my AMD64. It has been an interesting journey to say the least. I have been asked of its benefits often and found it hard to answer. It is tough at time to finagle with both sets of RPM's prior to learning there were both 64 and 32 bit apps running. Never occurred to me it wasn't pure 64. Foolish I know. At any rate I run this as a desktop and the biggest pain so far has been the lack of 64 bit Mozilla plugins namely the flash plugin.
Has it been a total waste? I don't think so... I remain optimistic for the near future of pure 64. But hey, it's also nice to fall back on 32 if need be. Wouldn't want a total lockout.
