Except that one OS is 64-bit and the other is 32-bit.

Bullshitting isn't evidence.

except it's the same os, and it runs both 32 and 64 bit apps the same
time.

Of course. But there is some breakeven point of RAM in a given machine
where 32 bit will run a bit better than 64. You are well above such a
point, and I suspect said point is now..................


pointless.

The fact that one is a 64-bit OS and the other is 32-bit proves that
you're full of **** when you claim that they're the same.

No, you know what you believe. That's something completely different.

no, it proves that you're full of ****.

there is no one or the other, there is just one operating system in
this case, and it's both 32 & 64 bit.

mac os x is a *single* operating system on which 32 bit apps and 64 bit
apps can run, at the same time and side by side.

many applications contain both 32 & 64 bit binaries in case the user
has an older 32 bit mac (still the same os), but some recent apps are
already dropping 32 bit support, as they should. regarding photoshop, a
user might also want to launch it in 32 bit mode to use older 32 bit
plug-ins, or to benchmark it for stupid discussions such as this.

Both are in my possession.

Nope, I've never been a PC gamer. (Does chess qualify?)

It's not for everybody, but, then...>what< is? "Savageduck" seems to
have plenty of time and the necessary skills, though.
