Re: [POLL] To continue 64 or not?

As a server I would think it would be great but as a workstation it
seems to be a pain. The chroot jail works, but having to maintain the
apt libraries (I am using etch, so they change fairly often), it more
of a pain.

For those that have the knowledge, I know that the 64 bit architecture
is faster due to addressing and such, but is it that noticeable? Also,
I have read that the 32 kernel still supports the dualcore nature of
the amd64 even though running in 32 bit mode (is this true, my source
wasn't 100% reliable).

Just looking for some constructive feedback on other's opinions.

maybe you could also run 64bit kernel with 32bit userspace... not doing that personally, i am happy with amd64 port, but it might be worth trying, there are some reports of this on d-u...
