Hi Everyone, I’m a new poster and this is my situation:
I would like to run Haiku Beta 3 on my Lenovo Thinkpad L13 laptop. I have already browsed topics about running Haiku on real hardware. I see that many Haiku users/developers like to run it on Thinkpads too. But there’s one question that’s not addressed:
If I’m going to install Haiku on real hardware, which option is better: 32-bit or 64-bit?
When I say “better,” I mean better in terms of hardware and drivers support. I don’t really care about legacy BeOS applications. WebPositive and a handful of new ported 64-bit apps will suffice :-). What I’m really concerned about is the drivers support. The stuff that’s usually at kernel-level.
So to paraphrase this another way, do you have better hardware/drivers coverage on the 32-bit? Or is it the 64-bit? Or is it the same?
Please clarify this for me. I know about the 4 GB RAM addressability limit with 32-bit, but it’s the hardware/drivers availability I’m looking at.
