"Say you've got yourself a nice computer, be it tower, notebook,
or whatever, and it has a dual core 64 bit chip. It's a pretty cool
system and it came with Windows 7. After much hounding and friendly
ribbing from your Linux-pushing friend, you decide you're going to
load up Ubuntu. So you wander over to the Ubuntu desktop site to
download your desktop Linux ISO where it tells you that the 64 bit
edition isn't recommended for desktop use (see the image below).
You're confused. After all, your computer came with a 64 bit
version of Windows. Isn't 64 bits better than 32? Why can't Linux
run a 64 bit desktop?"
