I would like to install Ubuntu on my Dell Latitude E5400 laptop which has 4 Gigs of RAM. It is currently running Windows 7 and I want to set it up as a dual-boot system.
My inclination is to install the 64-bit version of Ubuntu in order to be able to access all 4 Gigs of RAM. However, I was just browsing the Ubuntu online help files and they state that "The 32-bit version tends to be easier to use and runs into less problems."
Why would the 32-bit version be easier to use? And what kind of problems is the 64-bit version more likely to encounter?
