If I upgrade my hardware to a 64 bit system, does Revit convert all of my 32 bit projects and families to 64 bit each time I open them?  What if my consultant's are still using 32 bit software and hardware?  Are they going to have to go through a lengthy conversion process each time the receive an updated model?

No, no, no, the 64 bits turn your computer faster don't interfere with the files, there is no problem at all to save your file in revit 64 and your consultant's open it in revit 32, this is not like when you save a file in Revit 2010 and try to open in Revit 2009.

The downside to 64-bit is in running other software. You may have older printers that are not compatible with 64 bit, you would lose the ability to print. Also, some Construction Administration  software is not 64 bit-compatible. Make sure you check all of the your software and print drivers.

Revit files are Revit version dependant, not operating system dependant.

We converted to 64 bit with no problems. Revit 2010 runs great.  We did however as someone mentioned, had problems with the printers (older) and their drivers that did not support 64 bit. There are work arounds though.
