Debian and its clones FreeSoftwareMagazine takes a look at Debian as a desktop system, and they conclude: "I feel that Debian Etch is as good on the desktop as it is on the server. It has a long rich history, a strong community, is amazingly stable and is a great fit for both my servers and my laptop. I urge everyone to give it a go on the desktop."

It is not just a Debian problem: it is an issue with most operating systems (except maybe for OS X, but we must wait for Leopard before we can really be sure. Also SUSE has one of the most mature 64 bit versions).
So I solve the problem the easy way: I install the 32 bit version.
