I assume that the problem is that XeTeX is dynamically linked.  I
don't know which Linux distribution you are using.  I'm using Gentoo
Linux on AMD_64 and Gentoo only supplies shared 32-bit libraries
needed by nonfree 32-bit-programs like acroread.  I assume that a
64-bit version of XeTeX works better on my system.

In order to find out whether dynamic linking is the problem, run

  ldd /path/to/xetex

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
