Found the flags, not necessarily in alphabetical order, anyway, the point I was trying to make was that the poll is a total waste of time if it does not work. How many people tried to vote? We will never know.

Shows up fine for me.

But anyway, If I have a 64 bit capable cpu I always install 64 bit, regardless of how much ram is in the pc, that`s just the way I see it and I`ve never had a problem with it.

Shame only 3.6% of the viewers voted at present, I suppose most people don't bother to join forums.

Yippie my vote is showing. I voted for 64 bit because it is the future and is increasingly adopted by software developers, also most pc's with Windows already on are 64 bit. Microsoft has not abandoned 32 bit, I have 32 bit Windows 8 pro DVD's although I only use 64 bit. I use 32 and 64 in W7. Since W7 32 bit is still available and will be supported until 2020, those people wanting a modern os in 32 bit are ok for now and it is possible to buy genuine copy's for less than 60.

Just a reminder that you can use either 32- or 64- bit with each license, change as often as you want as long as only one is installed at a time. The installers are in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 so no reason to buy another license just to use a different bit-version.

I had forgotten that you could change as required, and you can download an ISO of Windows 32 or 64 and use it as long as you have the product key.

Is there way to use more than 4GB when on 32bit?

Not really, although some will be used for hardware which you can check by typing Resource Monitor in Start Search box and accessing the Memory tab.

The differences between your and you're.
This causes some confusion on this forum site. Your = Ownership i.e. That is your computer You're = Combination of 'You' and 'Are'. i.e. You're fast Usain Bolt.
