State of 64bit desktop
At work I'm starting to push the limits of my RAM with MySQL/InnoDB on
my workstation (I do dev/testing on my workstation). I have 64bit
hardware, capable of taking 8gb memory.
What I'm worried about is the tools I use. In particular, I need a
browser with all the usual suspects working properly: flash and java
(unfortunately some of the tools I need to use at work are written in
these abominable languages). Does anyone do heavy java and flash usage
under 64bit Debian (I'm running Lenny)? One tool in particular I'm
forced to use is the Raritan KVM interface. It's horrible.
Is this move viable or should I rather invest in a second box (won't
come for free). I don't want to mess around with 32bit chroots - did
that before and I didn't like it one bit.
