32 bit or 64 bit? any difference?

Post by Valis » Wed May 30, 2018 7:46 pm

I do not do billions of calculations.

So, is there any reason to choose 64 bit instead of 32 bit?


Also, why is the login here not secure?

Many customers asked for a 64bit version of SoftMaker Office but of course you can also properly work with the 32bit version.

Better, actually!

I find the 32 bit Windows version far more reliable.

There is no difference in reliability between them.

Basicmaker works on 32 bit. It doesn't on 64 bit. I might switch if it is ever finished.

You can find more information about that topic also by searching on the internet with keywords "difference between 32-bit and 64-bit programs".
Some information from Microsoft:

Computers running 64-bit versions of Windows generally have more resources such as processing power and memory.
Also, 64-bit applications can access more memory than 32-bit applications (up to 18.4 million Petabytes). Therefore, if your scenarios include large files and/or working with large data sets and your computer is running 64-bit version of Windows, 64-bit is the good choice when:
  • working with large data sets
  • working with extremely large pictures, videos, or animations
  • working with files over 2 GB
