32 vs 64 bit? and Ubuntu vs kubuntu and other virsions of linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2010
Hey, first of all i would like to introduce my self because this is my first post ( out of many hopefully ).
so my name is Ariel, hello everyone.
it is quite hard to ignore the fact that most people prefer linux for some reasons, so i thought to my self:
what's so special about it?
i did my little research and figured that Ubuntu is probably the best Desktop linux there is.
now i would like to know:
What is the difference between Ubuntu and Kubuntu (and other similar OS's?)I would like to have both linux and windows on my pc, i heared about a concept or something like that which is called "Dual booting", i would be glad to have any reference about how it works, or how i could get it to work .what should i use, 64 bit or 32 bit OS? do 32 bit programs work on 64 bit linux?Pros and Cons of ubuntu verses other linux OS?what does UNIX mean? is it like linux? same kernel or what? i really couldnt figure it out is there anything else important for me to know before in
JBoss: 32 vs 64 Bit Performance differences?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: February 11, 2012
I know that it is a pretty vague question but I was hoping to get some ideas about where to look as it is a little puzzling to me.
I have a web app that computes some value and returns it to the client (EJB remote calls). When I call my localhost from a main() test looping 10 times, it comes back within about 100 milliseconds. When I call the DEV machine following the same process, it is sometimes fast and sometimes really slow, like 4 seconds, which is a huge difference.
The weird thing is that my localhost is a 32 bit 1GB Jboss config but my DEV machine is a 64 bit 6GB Jboss config so if anything, I would expect my localhost to hang... not the the DEV machine.
Where would you suggest starting the troubleshooting process?

Hello, I am confused about this 32 vs 64 bit install.I want a 64 bit system as I have 8 Gigs of Ram. Which of the following two installs should I choose? I have an Intel 2500K processor which of course can handle 64bit. The first option says Intel, the second says 64 bit, but then also says AMD. So is the first option both 32 and 64 bit? If yes, how or at what point do I choose if I want to install 32 or 64 bit?
Or, if it is the second one, will it work with my Intel 2500K?

I recently installed Precise on a Lenovo Ideapad using hte 32 bit version because I didnt realize I had a 64 bit processor. Everything has been running smoothly but I just realized I should have installed the 64 bit version. Would it be faster with 64 bit? Is there a way to change it?
32 vs. 64 Bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 4, 2012
So, I have a computer with an i3 processor, which I'm pretty sure is capable of running a 64 bit operating system. Currently I have 32 bit Ubuntu installed on it. What are the practical benefits of a 64 bit operating system...is it worth wiping my system to install Ubuntu 64 bit? I am not a gamer or anything...basically this computer is used for very light tasks, like surfing the web, word processing, etc. Occasionally I might want to run a memory-intensive program, like Eclipse, or possibly spin up an Android emulator. What do y'all think?
32 vs 64 on my dell studio
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 18, 2011
I was wondering what I should go with for Ubuntu 10.04 32bit or 64 bit. I am running a Dell Studio 1737 4 gigs ram, Intel® Pentium(R) Dual CPU T3400 @ 2.16GHz × 2. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit os right now, but I was told I can run a 64 bit. I was just hoping someone with more knowledge about hardware could help me decide which one will run smoother. . Thanks
Ubuntu 32 or 64 bits on an Atom with 1gb of RAM?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 30, 2010
I am building a small PC using an Intel Atom D510 with 1gb of RAM. It will be used mainly for web surfing.
Of course I am installing in it Ubuntu 10.04, but I can't decide between 32 and 64 bits. On one hand 64 bits uses more RAM (remember I only have 1 gb) and has some problems with Flash, but on the other, it is faster, which can be important when using a slow processor like the Atom. Besides, I've read on various web pages that programs compiled in 64 bits usually assume that the processor has more capabilities (like SSE) and, by using them, can be more efficient.
What would you suggest I choose? Has anyone tested the difference between 32 and 64 bits on an Atom?
Thanks you very much
32 vs 64 bit 12.04 question?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 9, 2013
Just installed 32 bit 12.04 Precise on and old P4 Dell single core 2.8GHZ PC with 1GB of ram, that does not have 64 bit architecture capability. Took about 30 minutes and all appears well. Then had to d/l and install 504 updates of 90.2 megs. This went fine.
The question is recently I did the same install with 64 bit 12.04 Precise on another newer PC and it required around 350 updates of 253 megs!
Expected the volume of meg updates to be the same! Why did those 504 updates on 32 bit PP only go 90 megs, while 64 bit PP took 253 megs?
Ubuntu 32 or 64 bit: What is the difference?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 30, 2010
A few days ago I asked which Linux operating system is the easiest to use, and it sounds like Ubuntu is the one to run.
Anyhow, I am unsure as to whether I should use the 32 or 64 bit version. I have an AMD 64 bit processor, and I did a bit of Googling to try and figure out which one to install, but the information is conflicting.
Some websites say that 32 bit is faster for everything except video editing and advanced scientific math calculations, and that 32 bit has less problems with compatibility. Other websites say that 64 bit is faster at everything, and that software compatibility is not much of an issue anymore.
Which should I install? What are the differences between 32 and 64 bit systems?
I have an AMD Athlon 3000+ 64 bit processor, and 1 gig of ram.
13.1 32 vs 64 bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 28, 2010
Before installing Slack 13.0 I considered the 64 bit version but decided against it because of a warning that not all apps might be available under 64bit. I will test 13.1 hopefully soon, so I wonder what the situation is now with respect to this issue.
