Maybe a lot of people answered, but I want to tell my opinion too. I using
amd64 Kubuntu since few monts.
1 Am I right in assuming that 64bit Linux has improved since I tried it?
- YES, a lot I think...as I experienced..
2 If the answer to that is yes, are there good reasons to move to 64bit?
- again, YES.. 30-40% faster working, compiling and faster boot, shutdown
3 Are there still some problems with it?
- I don't think so. I using FF3in1 script what installs me a Firefox32 bit
browser with flash+java support. Then I installed a GTK theme and everything
4 Do many people on the list use it or are most still on 32bit?
- Only one pc using 32bit at home, other two are using 64. After the new
parts arrived, I will install amd64 on that too. It's just faster.
5 Does anyone have suggestions, advice, help for me about this?
- Yes, use the script for easy install of java+flash (ff3in1(
- other one, use ENVY to install Nvidia/ATi drivers (It compiles the amd64
drivers better than the simple install does).
- Uhm..there was a memory leak in the def. kernel in the 7.10, but Hardy
using the 2.6.24 based one.. so I don't know any other problems.
