Hi James

Umm!!! factually no, LO is still 32bit on Linux, it just works as seamlessly as I explained in my previous email / post, on a Linux 64bit system, as it does on a Windows 64bit system. I code in my spare time, and I can tell you to change from 32bits of coding to 64bits of coding is a monumental uphill learning curve.

In the simplest terms imagine managing 32 horses of a high spirit, and you just get it right, now add another like 32, and you can see just the tip of the iceberg what is involved in offering apps in 64bit mode.

My guess is that the default is 64bit or else other apps might need the 64bit version. It's generally not a good idea to have more than 1 version of Java although even 1 might well be more than you need now.

The big question is why are the Windows version of LibreOffice and OpenOffice still 32 bit only. They've both been available in 64 bit versions on Linux for years.
