Linux x86_64 vs x86
I1m just wondering wich type of os should be installed on my pc. I have a 64bit processor. Does the x86_64 version have disadvantages? For example I can`t install flash player for this architecture Why does it need different player if all 32bit programs can run on it? If I have a 64bit version OS, do i need different drivers than I use in the 32bit version? What would you recommend to install?
thanks a lot
Yes, 64-bit Linux operating systems do have drawbacks. You will need 64-bit device drivers (such as 3D drivers). Here is my opinion on the matter:
