Hi Centos Users

What are the advantages of 64 Bit and respective 32 Bit installation
of Centos? With PAE 32 Bit installation can address huge amount of
RAM. As a desktop system, I prefer 32 Bit installation because of
teething troubles in 64 Bit Linux world.

When would you choose 64 Bit and when 32 Bit? We are running mostly
application and web services.

Is this true that with 32 Bit architecture the kernel is limited to 1 GB RAM?
