What I mean is the 32-bit compatibility libraries and support for
32-bit executables works so well I have yet to find a 32-bit
application that doesn't work as good on 64-bit CentOS as it does on
32-bit CentOS, if the need should ever arise that is, cause most
enterprise vendors ship 64-bit versions of their wares these days.
