Came across this article about "Go 64-bit with Windows 7" : 

The article above says "if you have less than 4GB RAM, stay 32-bit", 
does it hold true for Linux as well ?

I would like to read about first hand experience of people using 64-bit 
Linux, is it any better compared to 32-bit ?
Is there a reason to switch to 64-bit (especially for home 
use/non-server use) ?
