I understand, and as I haven't upgraded to 64-bit hardware yet, can't agree or disagree his his general opinion.
Keep in mind that Linux is only a kernel (which has been ported to 64-bit hardware) and each application packaged in a certain distribution is maintained individually by a different person or organization, so an unstable application shouldn't cause you to give up on Linux, just "kill" it and move on or even better report it to the organization who created it, they probably have a website. just my opinion
