Hi all,

Not strictly a 13.04 question, but as I'm thinking about testing the 64bit version...

I have a 64bit laptop with 4gb RAM. Would it be best to continue using the 32bit version I'm currently using, or do a fresh 64bit install? What are the benefits & downsides to using 64bit? I have heard that some 32bit software doesn't work with 64bit - if so, are there workarounds?
