There are currently no plan for 64-bit userland, but there are plans for 64-bit
kernelland with 32-bit userland, which will notably permit to efficiently make
use of more than 2 GiB memory and provide 4 GiB userland addressing space.
-Work on this is currently in branches for GNU Mach.
+[[Work on this|open_issues/64-bit_port]] is currently in the master-x86_64 and
+port-amd64 branches for GNU Mach.
That being said, you can always run a 32-bit version on a 64-bit machine, it
