http://crunchbanglinux.org – Hi, I discovered that I installed the 32bit version on my amd64turion laptop. I downloaded the 64bit stable version now and will do a reinstall. What is the main difference? Will it perform differently/better? One thing I noticed is that my laptop gets very hot in a short time. Also, it needs a lot of power and the battery doesn't last long! Will that be better with the 64bit version?Thanks for any help.Twapru (HowTos)
