Benchmarks When running tests, installing operating systems, and compiling software for my Ultra 5, I came to the stunning realization that hey, this system is 64-bit, and all of the operating systems I installed on this Ultra 5 (can) run in 64-bit mode.

"Also, building a 64-bit capable compiler can be an experience to behold. That is to say, it can suck royally. After spending quite a bit of time getting a 64-bit compiler built for (one of my many) Linux installs, I ended up just going with the pre-compiled version from http://www.sunfreeware.com"

Pre-compiled version of what. GCC?
