I've been using ubuntu 64 bit lately and am very pleased with it. Although I never tested the 32 bit version so I got a question. Would I get better performance in ubuntu 32bit? Currently my system monitor reports 770MB used ram (minus buffered/cached memory) with only firefox and exaile open.
HP 8510p (T7300 2.0Ghz, 2GB ram, ATI HD 2600 mobility, 120GB 5400 rpm)
I use ubuntu for:
- OpenOffice tasks
- Surfing the web, mail, IM, torrents,...
- Playing music and watching movies
- Coding webpages, java with eclipse SDK
- Playing CS 1.6 through steam and WoW
