OpenSUSE 11, 32 or 64 bit?


I am getting a new desktop computer with Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 processor, which is 32/64 bit. Can anyone tell me the pros and contras of the two OpenSUSE 11.0 versions? Up to to now I been using only 32 bit version.

I would go for 64 bit version - as I find it a bit quicker with heavy duty stuff

32 on 64 should work.

I'm not sure when 9.3 came out though - it may not support Core2 Duo.

Why don't you get OpenSuSe 11

I don't know when 9.3 came out, but I found a May 2005 review on the net, so over 3 years ago.

11 Claims to support duo - see http://software.opensuse.org/
