I'm planning to make a private osm server. My question is if it will perform well on a 64 bit system. I assume it should and it doesn't really matter what kind of system i have but i just want to be sure.

4 is run by only 64-bit systems.

The rails port is built on "Ruby on Rails" which uses the programming language Ruby which is an interpreted language and platform independant. If you can run ruby on your platform you can run the rails port.

So the rails port can in theory run on Windows, Linux, Mac, FreeBSD, OpenBSD ... and on x86, x86-64, ARM, PowerPC ...

Btw, what about potlatch2 on a 64 bit? How does flash works there?

Adobes flash player is avalable on windows, linux and mac and on x86 and x86-64, and on android. However since it is closed source it is not possible to port it to any other platforms.

An open source and more portable alternative to adobes flash player is lightspark. However the developers of Potlatch 2 (with no regards to portability) uses features that are not avalable in lightspark yet.
