Re: Fedora 9 32 or 64 Bit - Which One?



I'm going to skip some of the dialog, but Linux has been 64-bit since 1994.
Just a couple of things I did not see mentioned. In x86 memory is segmented, in x86_64 memory is linear. I think that you'll find that graphics tend to render better in a 64-bit system .

There are some applications that do perform better in 32-bit.
