I can't speak for Windows, but on my 64-bit Linux computer I installed
a 64-bit version of PDFEdit.

On my Fedora 11 computer PDFEdit was in the repositories. I just
installed it with Yumex. Seems to run fine, but it will take some time
to figure out how to use it. I suspect its utility will depend on how
the PDF was created. I.e., if it was created by printing to CUPS-PDF, I
know that rasterizes everything, so likely the text won't be editable.
