*From the time AMD launched the first x86_64 chip, most of us have been
running 64 bit Linux on 64 bit CPUs. I was running 64 bit Linux on
Alphas for years before that. Its a long long time since there were are
real issues running 64 bit Linux. There are, however, a few programs
that misbehave in odd ways when you run 32 bit Linux on 64 bit hardware.
I assume its because those programs misinterpret the platform they are
running on in some way. I've never taken the time to investigate. It
makes far more sense to just install 64 Linux.
Well, I also used as a live cd 64 bit fedora core 15, but it showed some errors in graphics and probably my printer was not working (might it doesn't work in live cd mode). But i guess that is the problem of use of 'live cd' and after installation no such issue would be there.
