    Added Ubuntu 9.10 to my multiboot mix

    Just recently added Ubuntu 9.10 to my multiboot mix. Smile
    So now I have Vista, XP, Win 7 (beta version), Ubuntu 8.10, and now Ubuntu 9.10 all installed on one single laptop computer. Am liking Ubuntu 9.10 so far, and seeing as the new version of mine is 32 bit (whereas my Ubuntu 8.10 is 64 bit), I am now able to run some programs that wouldn't work on the Ubuntu 64 bit version. Pretty cool...
    We'll see how it goes in the future though.

    I've been itching to get back into Ubuntu for some time, I just don't seem to have the time to really sit down and play with it. So don't go with 64-bit than? I've been all 32-bit and it looks like the way to go until these developers realize 64-bit is becoming more common.

    Well, all the main applications one would use in Ubuntu (such as Firefox, OpenOffice.org, Inkscape, Blender, Gimp, Audacity, VLC Media Player, etc.) works in 64 bit, but there are a few applications that I needed to work in that do not. Also, certain drivers for certain hardware (such as my canon pixma ip90v printer) only work in 32 bit.

    Well, I only got 2GB of RAM in both my machines, so I haven't really felt the need to try out the 64-bit versions Smile

    You sure Canon doesn't have 64-bit drivers somehwere? I was surprised to find HP had a whole site for getting their printers working in Linux.
