SELF: Anatomy of an (alleged) failure

I'd guess 32 bit (for oldish machines and netbooks). But some serious gamers I know spend more on their grapics card than I do on a complete machine, for for high-end 64 bit 2 (or even 4) cores is probably the way to go.

On current Fedora, you can install 32 and 64 bit versions happyly (most of the time), the installed packages do share non-architectured stuff (like manpages and whatnot). Yes, it does require some delicate juggling when building the packages to make sure said manpages and such are exactly equal and some other considerations.
