Ubuntu: Which 12.10 desktop version should I use for HP Prolaint N54L?


I recently purchased the HP Proliant N54L microserver to use as a simple fileshare/server at home. I am new to Ubuntu and servers, which is why I'm going to install the desktop rather than the server edition (sadly I need the GUI).

Which version would you recommend? 32-bit or 64-bit? Any other advice?


You should definitely go with 64 bit, as long you are not going to use any specific 32 bit applications (maybe some old games and so).

Cause it is server - you can install something light (like XFCE xubuntu, or LXDE lubuntu). They are pretty light and will still give you access to rest of the apps from repositories.
