I might also point out java, which nobody else has pointed out thus far.
Simple applets and apps work fine with either blackdown or sun-jre/jdk.
However, more complex apps can tend to break in 64-bit land due to bugs in
the VMs. I've found some that work with blackdown only and some which run
with sun-1.5 only (which is a beta that breaks all kinds of other stuff).
I've gotten so frustrated with 1.5 issues that right now I don't have java
installed at all 64-bit. I just run it in a 32-bit chroot.
If you are just running simple stuff I wouldn't worry about it, but if you
want to run anything complex I'd consider using a chroot...
