None, currently.  5 is a link pointing to the latest 5.x release, and
until 5.1 hits the streets, "max[x] = 0".

As long as it is not IA64.


For a server, x86_64 is probably a no-brainer.  For a desktop, if you
want to avoid issues with browser 32-bit plugins, etc. and don't NEED
the 64-bit, may want to stick with i386 release.
