    Windows 7 Installation 64 bit ?

    Hello Ubuntu
    Was wondering if someone might be able to help out. I notice a while back that this said not recomended for daily desktop usage 64 bit. I have a laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I don't think I can install the 32 bit Ubuntu on my laptop, because it is a 64 bit system.

    Is it safe to install the 64 bit Ubuntu ?

    Why does it say not recomended for daily desktop usage for 64 bit?
    I don't have a desktop, but would it be a problem if I use it on my laptop for daily use.

    I never saw this with the past Ubuntu versions. I have used those 64 bit versions on my laptop without any problems.

    Would appreciate any help on this matter.
    Thanks
    Rich

    I'm not sure why the 64-bit edition has that disclaimer attached, some have speculated that it could be to do with the issues with Adobe Flash.

    Personally, I've been using 64-bit edition as my daily desktop operating system since Lucid was released, and never had any problems.

    Depending on your processor, 32-bit would work for you. I had Karmic 32-bit installed on my 64-bit system.

    I manage to installed the 32 bit Ubuntu, and did some updates.
    Seems to be working fine.
    Have a great day!
