I'd say it is sort of gnome-oriented, but there is plenty of desktop stuff now.

Firewalls?   Iptables starts with some restrictive rules.

Details?   I haven't seen any 64-bit issues at all in 6.x.   32-bit
libs aren't always included like they were in 5.x so if you are
copying in some unpackaged 32-bit binaries you might have to install
some library support explicitly.

Why?  Anything current should have 64-bit versions available or work
from source builds on 64-bit.
