It doesn't really matter, as long as there is a recent Python version installed/available. AFAIK, RHEL/CentOS still comes only with 2.4 which is too old. We are running MapProxy on Debian 5 and different Ubuntu versions and also have customers on OpenSuse. So you should choose a system where you are most comfortable with.

No, but the most CPU intensive stuff is done by the Python Image Library (PIL) and I don't know if it does run faster on 64 bit systems.
