We've heard arguments from both sides. Since Unplggd is all about the home, we certainly are curious how many readers out there are actually running on a 64-bit operating system on their home computers. Do share if you are and let us know the benefits in case some of us wish to upgrade to a 64-bit Windows 7 OS in the near future!
Oh, and to make things clear, Snow Leopard isn't a true 64-bit just yet. Only partly. Which is still great, but it doesn't count. AppleInsider explains it quite well in this diagram below:
As for Windows 7, you do have the option to go either way; 32- or 64-bit, but aside from the ability to use large amounts of memory, we're still a bit reluctant to stray away from our loving (and stable) 32-bit platforms.
Have a comment, question, or input about the 32- vs. 64-bit debate? Let us know below!
