32 bit vs 64 bit Fedora 16 Version

  • For almost all PCs download 32 bit version. For e.g., most machines with Intel/AMD/etc type processors. This is good for desktop usage. Almost all multimedia plugins and software works with 32bit edition.
  • Download 64 bit version to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2 Due, Core 2 Quad, i7Core, i5Core and so on). For servers and advanced feature such as hardware error detection, access to more than 4GB RAM and so on; download 64bit version.

  1. Installed Fedora 16 x64 Gnome on my Acer Aspire Ethos and it runs smoothly.
    Look and feel is better then Ubuntu’s Unity.

  2. I got this for my Girlfriend, and I must say it is really amazing!
    I liked it so much, I put it on my laptop.

    For her, it was hands down the best computing experience she has ever had.
    Really user friendly, and easy to navigate.. I would suggest this distro to anyone who was ready to go 100% Linux.

    1. i believe that windows 7 is still better and easy to use mainly installing programs that is. Your girlfriend sounds like a nerd.

  3. Hey, I’m trying to burn these files to disc. Do I need to get an .iso converter to put it on dvd? I’ve always downloaded the straight images. Instruction please. I gotta hand in work tomorrow at school for this class, and I can’t even get it installed.

    1. Just simply burn the iso file to a dvd using the built in burning software your computer came with. You usually just double click on the iso file when its downloaded and it will automatically open the software ready to burn to dvd.

    1. yes i have lenovo g560 i3 processer and 3gb ram …….its run smoothly…
