Hi James!

Audio and video encoding and program compilation is usually faster under 64
bit.

The 32 bit hangover is more of an issue under Windows where lots of apps
still don't have 64 bit versions to the point where it can seem silly
bothering with a 64 bit OS. Under Linux you can install the 32 bit libs
easily enough if you need to run a 32bit (usually closed source) app such
as Skype.
