And how would a Linux user on a Linux mailing list flying a Linux

in the context of the forum in which we participate, and it is not
common knowledge outside this forum.

Until critical software has a 64 bit release, then yes I suggest 32
bit for users. When making decisions for yourself be as daring as you
wish. When giving advice to others, play it safe.
