 64-bit and 32-bit computing

Interesting article about 64 bit computing.

"One of the interesting things about this type of processor is that a 64-bit operating system is able to run both 32-bit and 64-bit programs concurrently. Linux (meaning the GNU toolchain as well as the Linux kernel) has been ported to run on a variety of such processors."
