    I've found that 64bit provides an overall better desktop experience than 32bit.

    If the only reason is flash being 32bit, they should take the message down. One proprietary app that is fading away with the advent of HTML5/SVG != justification to spook people away from a hardware platform that has proven itself since 2005.

        Sure they can. My Atom 330 server runs 10.04 x64 just fine.

          Like he said, older Atom processors.

            The 330 is a Diamondville core and is 2 years old. They don't get much older than that.

                A boatload of earlier netbooks had the N270 without 64bit support. If I recall correctly, VIA had their 64bit chip to market faster than Intel's 64bit Atom (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VIA_Nano).
