    32 or 64 bit?

    Currently running 32-bit Ubuntu 12.04 on a 64-bit system. My question is, what are the advantages of 64 bit? What am I missing out on?

    If I switch to 64 bit will there be any major issues with drivers etc?

    First of all, It's not like Windows. In linux you can install 64 bit on 1 GB RAM (like my RAM ^^).
    64 just sends bigger data anytime to the ram, so he works faster.
    32 sends smaller, and less fast, but still, there is something about 32 that will fit more to less than 4 ram. I think (someone will need to corect me maybe).

    I use 32 bit, I like it. Maybe softwares supported better in 32 than in 64, but immnot sure.


    Anyway, if you has a system for 64 (a new computer who designed for 64), use 64, your system will work faster (not sure how much faster, maybe you won't notice the different).
    I suggest you 64 ^^. and to hear this song, I just found it today and like it (: : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29-q7YnyUmY (no relate to the Thread ^^ )
