Default Windows 7 is driving me nuts so...

If you have followed my previous thread I decided to do some updating to my older desktop. I opted for a minor upgrade, double my ram, get an SSD and go 64 bit.

Well, the ram did not work, need to RMA the stuff. Windows 7 64bit needs a lot of updates which fails to configure and I really don't feel like troubleshooting something that should work

So, now I am thinking I am just going to put the old hard drive back in with the 32bit version of windows and everything else on it. Format the SSD and install Ubuntu linux on it (just to try it) and start saving some cash for a different upgrade, A desktop Mac. Yeah. I said it. I am growing tired of window.

I figured a Linux Distro and windows 7 will allow me to dual boot. I also know some Android hacking can be done in the Linux box. I can't totaly burn the bridge with windows yet but I think I can make a couple steps toward doing that.

Should I go 32bit or 64bit Ubuntu linux?

Most people run from storms, I run to them (back by popular request )
