Myself am using 9.10 x64, and I planned to move to 10.04 x64 when 10.10
is released (I am moving to new versions with a release delay).
However this description makes me puzzled, and I wonder whether I should
bypass 10.04 and move to 10.10 instead.
Imagine how newcomers with modern desktops and laptops will think about
this, when they see that the 64-bit version is "Not recommended for
daily desktop usage".
