This question already has an answer here:
I've been using Ubuntu 12.10 for some time now, but I am very limited when it comes to installing some software such as wine that won't run on a 64bit. I want to know what are the biggest disadvantages/advantages of both the 32 and 64 bit. Will it be worth switching to a 32bit? If using a 32bit will my programs still work?
Will this command change completely the architecture from 64 to 32bit, or will it just add support to 32bit while keeping the 64bit?
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
