We were discussing this on another forum today, most seem to agree that the time is right for this. Certainly this will help with development too. Also, there are specialized distributions for legacy hardware. Sure, there will be some complaining but it was probably the same when syatems went from 16 to 32 bit.

The version of SL that uses a 32-bit kernel image and 32-bit libraries is going to cease, but the 64-bit version is a multilib version, i.e. it comes with both 64-bit and 32-bit libraries. I run 32-bit applications successfully in 64-bit SL (and in 64-bit Gentoo, from which SL is built).
