Have you ever wondered why you have the 32-bit version of Windows 10 installed on your computer while you have all the requirements to install the new version? Maybe you even need to upgrade from the 32-bit to the 64-bit version of Windows since some of your memory is not used (the 32-bit version only supports up to 4Gb of RAM). Before you upgrade, you need to check some things out first.
Only 1.7% of all Firefox users on Windows are running a 64-bit version of the browser while the majority of users runs a 32-bit version of Firefox according to Mozilla. Mozilla released a 64-bit version of the Firefox web browser for Windows last year but has not actively promoted it yet.
When you received your Windows 10 upgrade, Microsoft will have automatically provided you a like-for-like 32-bit operating system. But if you’d like to upgrade to the 64-bit version of Windows 10, you can – provided your hardware supports it.
Just like any other hardware component, the CPU has gone through some serious upgrades in the past few years. It’s not just about the number of cores, but the architecture has a greater saying in how everything runs, or if.
Arne Exton, an independent GNU/Linux developer, known for many Linux kernel-based operating systems, posted an interesting tutorial a couple of days ago about how to install the latest Linux 4.1 LTS kernel on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, or Debian distros.
You can only upgrade to Windows 10 using the same architecture -- for example, from Windows 7 32-bit to Windows 10 32-bit. In other words, you cannot do an in-place upgrade from 32-bit Windows to 64-bit Windows and maintain all your installed programs, plus a Windows 10 license.
A major driver of modern C/C++ development is the need for producing native 64-bit code. In most cases, servers and desktop systems are now almost exclusively 64-bit machines. Given this fact, isn't the move to 64-bit C/C++ code just a matter of changing a few build settings? Stephen B. Morris explains why it's not so simple.

Sunchip CX-W8 is an Intel Atom Z3735F TV box running Windows, but I’ve been informed that originally Sunchip designed it for WeTek in order to manufacture a Linux based mini PC. Unfortunately, they finally gave up once they discovered Intel had no intention to work on HDMI audio support in Linux for their Atom Z3700 series processor despite it working on Android… Intel Compute Stick will apparently use a separate DSP to handle that part (TBC).
With Google's introduction of 64-bit ABIs for Android, we need to make some minor updates to Version Codes we use to publish and filter app on Google Play. The current suggestion make the 64-bit ABI 1 higher than the 32-bit code, making the 64-bit the preferred.
Nowadays more and more mobile devices are powered by 64-bit architecture, and using 64-bit Android* is a great way to gain access to that market. This article will introduce Android on Intel® 64-bit architecture and discuss its unique compatibilities, including technical details and performance gains for Android on Intel® Atom™ processor-based platforms.
When the Android SDK was first made available to the world, Google used QEMU as the basis for their Android emulator. They copied the source code to a custom repository in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and made a number of invasive modifications to QEMU. Specifically, they added emulation of a specific board called goldfish for the purposes of emulating an Android phone.
Many of you already know about this, but since there are many users who are upgrading from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04, they might not be aware of what they need to do when a package, like Google Earth, fails to install because it depends on ia32-libs (on Ubuntu 64bit).
Zorin is a Linux distro especially for people that want to try Linux that have previously used Windows. Hate Windows 8? Ready to finally try Linux. Zorin may be the Linux distro you've been waiting for.
I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.13.1-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.13.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20140129).
Windows 7 Home Premium is available in both a 32-bit model and a 64-bit model. Although both types of Windows 7 look and act the same on the surface, the way they work is quite different. How do you choose between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions? It really boils down to your needs and capabilities.

As you may be knowing, 64-bit editions of Windows include 32-bit Internet Explorer as well as a 64-bit version. This has been the case since Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and the reason that both editions are included is for compatibility with addons. When 64-bit IE was first introduced, most addons like Flash Player, Java, and most ActiveX controls were 32-bit only. 32-bit addons cannot work with 64-bit IE, that's why Microsoft bundled both x86 and x64 IE versions. Users could easily open whichever IE they wanted but this changed with Internet Explorer 10. Let us see how.

The following tutorial will teach all Linux users how to install Valve's brand new SteamOS GNU/Linux operating system in a virtual machine, using the powerful and popular VirtualBox software. As you already know, the SteamOS Linux has been officially released on December 13 and is based on Debian GNU/Linux operating system, using GNOME as its (optional) desktop environment.
