Yup. About the same time as for IPv6, actually. I don't know when most devices got IPv6 support, but it certainly happened already. Oh, you mean actual usage? Then 2006 is not even close to reality. Netbooks are still used with 32bit OSes. Heck, ChromeOS is scheduled to be released in 2011 - and it's 32bit-only!
Either you use the one definition of success for x86-64 as for IPv6, namely, switch is declared "finished" when most vendors are shipping appropriate products - and then IPv6 already won and is huge success. Or you use another definition, namely switch is finished when everyone is using it in parallel to old technology - and then x86-64 is still not even half-way there.
