GoogleEarth works perfectly for me on SLED 11 x86_64, which is based on
OpenSUSE 11.1. I installed it just a week or so ago (previously had
version 4, now version 5) and it ran out of the box nicely.

64-bit Java also works for me, again on SLED. My wife runs 64-bit
OpenSUSE 11.1 on her box and it seems to be fine as well (not sure how
much she uses Java, really, but oh well).

Regarding "Internet Banking" I do not see how that is relevant. I've done
banking on multiple bank/credit union sites for years and never had a
problem at all. Websites use fairly standardized technologies ((X)HTML,
XML, CSS, ECMAScript/JavaScript, etc.) so all platforms should be fine.
In my own experience I use FireFox primarily and it has yet to find a site
it can't load properly unless it is laden with poo (ActiveX or similar)
and I really haven't even had that problem lately as standards-compliant
versions of most sites seem to be the norm these days.

If you have specific examples of issues you have seen, applications that
have failed, or things like that please post them but otherwise this does
not appear to be something specific enough for help.

Good luck.
