Most modern computers come with more than 4GiB of RAM, so you'd need a 64bit OS to use all of this. (Or 32bit with PAE, which is slower) Also, most new machines are using UEFI, and Ubuntu 32bit ISO's aren't UEFI-capable, so here you'd have to go with 64bit On older hardware, which doesn't use UEFI and/or has less then 4GiB of RAM, it doesn't matter, as long ...

As was suggested above (but not fully written out) - and if you want to avoid the need to use winecfg (which is annyoing in automation - you need to somehow close it), here is the full solution: create a wine64, then a wine32 directory. If you use winetricks to check it ...

you should think of 32 vs. 64 bit as if 64 Bus (mistakenly talking about processor) is like a truck that is as twice as wide than a normal truck (for 32 bit) , sure the 64 carries more cargo (data) on one trip than the normal 32 bit, so it is better if you use 64 bit OS to better benefit from hardware, the issue you mentioned is related to the way the apps ...

Your filesystem has MBR (Master Boot Record), in MBR maximum partition size is 2TB(tera byte) only, so that's why you are not able to do this. To make the system capable of this, you need to replace your MBR with GPT (GUID Partition Table). It allows you to create one partition up to 2PB(peta byte). To replace you can read this link : How can I ...
