I use Debian Lenny 64 bit on several systems (including my laptop) without
problems.  The only issues are with things like Adobe Flash which didn't
exist in a 64-bit version (for *any* platform) until recently.  The
open-source replacements are now becoming usable though.

Definitely not the case for Debian.  I haven't tried any others.
