hrm.. i was using digikam w/plugins (not sure if i had all of them though, as 
i can't check, obviously) running quite nicely on the amd64 .. i was quite 
impressed with how well everything in KDE tends to work; there was the odd 
compile or run time issue, but usually it was pretty good.

i know there are a few other KDE devs who have amd64s as well, because often 
by the time i'd go to commit a fix for a build problem someone else already 
had ;)
