Well, I wanted to come to FrOSCon but couldn't yet. So I didn't know
these CDs. ;-)

I don't know much about the Atoms but the Core Solo/Core Duo are
nowadays 64 bit as my computer dealer told me. That was what I asked
him about. Or let me put it like this: I told him as a matter of course
something about Single Core CPUs being 32 bit. He only looked at me
aghast and told me that every CPU manufacturer only produces 64 bit
CPUs since years.  As far as I remember he told me, that it was indeed
about 2005 or 2006 when the CPU manufacturers stopped producing 32 bit
