Moving to full 64bit should indeed be a better choice, you would
think, yet many of apps & plugins are still 32bit only.

I believe that this is fluff and not fact. There are a few apps which
only have 32bit plug-ins for certain capabilities, ie: I still run
32bit firefox and plug-ins and 32bit java. But *everything* else on
my 10.1 system *is* 64bit.

It's a vexing question, but for now I'm staying with 32bit.

Your choice! BUT it is not based on your experience, only perception.
