Hi folks. I just have a quick question. I downloaded Ubuntu 14.04 LTS from http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/
There were only 2 choices available according to the page, a "PC (Intel x86) desktop image" and a "64-bit PC (AMD64) desktop image".
Why, then, did my option, ubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso, turn out to be 32-bit? I have an i5-2500K on an ASRock Z68 Extreme4 board, with Windows 7 64bit running on another partition.
If this isn't 32bit, then why does System Settings > Details report it as such?
It has been quite a process repurposing this system with new components and software. How much funtion and speed will I lose if I decide to just keep this 32bit version? My goals are to run Blender 3D modeler and GIMP, mostly. If it's possible to view online 3D videos with Linux (I have an Nvidia GTX 750Ti card and a 3d-capable monitor), then I'd like to do that as well. I never allow Windows 7 online. He can't be trusted
Thanks for your help here. This has been a learning experience but it's put me terribly behind my required schedule. Cheers!
