64 bits on my old-ish MacBook Pro and FreeBSD 10; don't know about 
Penguin/OS as one of them is dead forever and the other is still in 
mid-upgrade (Debian).

I still reckon that 2038 will be "interesting", and who knows what epoch 
your smart kettle etc will be using (you know, the one that will switch 
itself on at your usual wake-up time, and make your coffee for you)?
