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.

Bits obviously make no difference- lets all switch back to 16 bit. J/k

Oh yeah, and Linux dosent run well on alot of 64 systems and alot of the 64 bit systems like like solaris run slow on 32 bit systems... example..

x86 - Linux vs. FreeBSD vs. Solaris
Winners are 1) FreeBSD 2) Linux 3) Solaris
It's expected that Linux will overtake FreeBSD due to its rapid development.

64-bit - Linux vs. FreeBSD vs. Solaris
Winners are 1) Solaris 2) FreeBSD 3) Linux

well..well, well
