Why do you think you need a 64bit version?
Because one is running a 64 bit operating system.
Yes, I am running several 64-bit Windows systems, but do you really need
to run a 64-bit office package? If I was going to do a lot of "number
crunching" I would look into a 64-bit package. But just because you
have a 64-bit Windows OS does not mean you need to have all your
packages be 64-bit - i.e. compiled to 64-bit and can only run on 64-bit.
I had a guy give me a 64-bit XP OS. He originally wanted to have his
system all run 64-bit Windows OSs if the processors were 64-bit. Have
you ever tried to run a 64-bit XP system? Worse than Vista.
So just because you have 64-bit, does not mean you need a 64-bit package
for all your computing needs.
The next thing people will insist on is LO being designed to run on all
2, 4, 6, or even 8 cores of the CPU at the same time to make it even
faster. Or a version that is compiled to work best on Win7 vs. XP or
Vista. It is bad enough that some packages I have will run on Win7
Professional and not Win7 Home Pre..
Seriously though, I bet if you looked at all of the software that you
install on your 64-bit Windows system, there maybe a lot of them that
are only 32-bit. Many of the drivers may even be 32-bit. That is the
good thing about OSs. They should be able to run both 32-bit and 64-bit
packages on their 64-bit versions of the OS.
What are you doing with LO that requires the heavier processing power of
a dedicated 64-bit package over a "standard" 32-bit package? I do not
know of anything I would need it for.
