comment Will Ubuntu run on my laptop?
The push for 64 bit architecture came out of the need to address huge amounts of memory on big data servers. It comes at a price though: system-wide memory bloat. If you can afford to have all your applications take up between 1.5 to 2 times as much memory, then yes, you will benefit from x64. As for who's taking it personally, citing opinions instead of facts it's pretty clear.

comment Gnome keyboard accelerators / keys in Ubuntu Trusty 14.04
Try booting from the 14.04 live usb (without installing) and see if you can replicate the issue. If you can't then this means it was caused by the upgrade process, and a fresh install will make it go away.

Now I go with fresh installs and migrate the settings I care about: takes a little time upfront, but clean system and no bad surprises guaranteed...

Get the 32bit version. With 3Gb of ram there's no point using the 64bit version, it will use up a lot more memory.
