Subject: [gentoo-amd64] 64-bit or 32-bit?

Has anyone noticed any real benefit from running their gentoo in 64-bit
vs doing everything 64-bit?

I am trying to decide if I should put the time into setting up a 32-bit
environment or and stay with 64-bit or if I should just rebuild my
system at 32-bit.

I am running with 2GB which should be fine for 32-bit.  I don't have
any specific needs for 64-bit.

Would I notice any big slow down from doing everything 32-bit on
amd64?  I am wondering if I should just go rebuild 32-bit and retry
64-bit in 6-12 months.

Any feedback would be welcome,

Jim
