Other benefits of 64-bit OS apart from memory expansion?
I'm going to be buying a laptop soon. I'm going to install Linux so that it will dual-boot Windows and Linux. If it is a 64 bit machine with 4 gigabytes of memory or less, would there be any downsides in installing a 32-bit copy of Linux instead of a 64-bit one?
If it's relevant, I will most likely be installing Xubuntu 12.04.
