Re: [opensuse] Can I ask something...?

I looked back through all your posts and found no discussion about the amount of your installed RAM. AIUI, 64 bit has some overhead penalty compared to 32 that isn't worth the price on lower RAM systems, probably 2G or less. It is only clear that most users of systems with more than 3.5G of RAM should use 64 bit and that most users of 1G or less of RAM should use 32 bit. It is less than clear which to choose if your RAM size is between 1G and 3.5G. I only have one system with more than 3.5G, only a few with 2G, and most have 1G or less. I run 32 bit on all of them. If you've already downloaded the 32 bit and have only 2G or less RAM, I'd skip downloading 64 bit.
