    Thus spake Rob Glover:

    There was a thread about this (in fact, probably dozens of them) in
    c.o.l.advocacy some time back...I wish we'd finished with the issue
    there.

    Linux on the Alpha is 64-bit (address space, etc.).
    Linux on almost every other platform is 32-bit.
    (I understand that Linux on the Ultra will be 64-bit, which will make
    it the first 64-bit OS for that hardware. Poor Sun.)
