    Been using it for a few months, and I'm glad to say that the latest 64-bit release now only crashes Flash player instead of hard-locking the system. It sucks to have to sit and hope that the system...

    Re: why does it recommend 32-bit?

    The Ubuntu installer should be able to do everything you need. I doubt the Windows disk manager will let you resize an active (mounted) partition.

    The link in my last post explains it in detail.

    Either Alt-F2 or go to a terminal:

    How much do you want to give it? Minimum size I allocate for an OS (usually for VM's) is 20GiB, but 100-200 would be good if you think you can spare it.

    Re: why does it recommend 32-bit?

    Horsepoop. 64 bit is fine.

    32 bit is recommended so that people don't wrongly download the 64-bit version and then wonder why nothing will execute on their 32-bit processor.
