	Have a look at mine, then. Dell Optiplex 760, 6GB RAM, 220GB HDD, Intel 
Core2 Duo @ 2.666 GHz. Fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10, upgraded last month 
to 10.4. Nice & zippy.
	Most of the people I hear complaining about 64bit Ubuntu being slow are 
people with less than 4GB of RAM on that system. For them, there is no 
point of having 64 bit OS anyway.
