	Some of my half-dozen machines are 64-bit and some not; so I do 
care about seeing this thread reach a resolution or consensus, if it can.

	But your jest gives me a sneakin' hunch that "performance" has 
some technical meaning. Izzat so??

	I had a machine once, running some early FC release, with some 
problems that I don't remember having understood, as a result of which it 
would throw itself at times into what I believe was a particular one of 
the super-lightweight window managers. I couldn't manage to do diddly-
squat with it -- maybe, at best, get it to shut down in an orderly way, 
and try again whenever I got my nerve or my temper back.

	I speak to the point, not to re-ignite ancient religious wars 
(and you may notice I have mentioned only Gnome <he wrote, ducking 
fast>), but merely to point out that to some of us, Gnome is a 
precondition of getting any performance at all -- at least, any of what 
I'd call performance. Alpha Plus Technoids' mileage may vary, of course, 
as usual. Which camp the OP belongs in, I have no clue. As for me, I vote 
three hearty cheers for the Gnome folks!
