My real point is that after running 64-bit Gentoo for 4 years I can
still see no *advantage* (and really only disadvantages) to running
64-bit Linux for a DAW platform. Certainly there are FAR fewer
disadvantages today than a few years ago, and that's good, but arguing
for the simplest solution would suggest Dave would be mildly better
off running 32-bit. There are no applications that I know of that
demand 64-bit processing. Dave's machine doesn't currently have more
than 4GB of DRAM and I suspect his chipset doesn't even support it.
All of the processor features are supported equally, if not better, in
32-bit. With that in mind I simply raised the point of view. Of course
I'm interested in finding out how 64-bit Linux makes my life better. I
just haven't found them myself.

Again, I run 64-bit on one of my machines and after all this time when
I'm given new 64-bit hardware I grab a 32-bit OS install disk, but
that's just me.

Cheers,
Mark
