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
