    Hi and it appears that Wubi does support the 64bit

    Also you can install studio from the synaptic package manager from within Ubuntu.

    Re: which version of ubuntu to install

    I would say you should install the 32-bit version, you`ll have fewer problems with drivers and so on. I`m running Ubuntu 8.04 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Intel Centrino Duo processor. After I used the 64 bit version I gave up and I have installed 32-bit version, it was much easier for my to make work my Canon printeron 32-bit version.
