WRI advertise Mathematica 5 for AMD64, see: http://www.wolfram.com/news/amd64.html. I presume that this is the "Linux (64 bit optimized) " version . They have checked compatibility with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 which supports 64 bit technology, hopefully this means that its OK on SUSE's desktop version; see http://www.suse.com/us/private/products/suse_linux/prof/64bit.html. So it looks as though a cheap 64 bit Mathematica is possible. Has anybody done it?
