Question: I have a laptop with 4GB RAM with Windows 10 64bit. I downgraded it to Windows 7 64bit. It becomes MUCH faster & smooth. I am very happy. But I wonder what if I install Windows 7 32bit instead? I don't have any plan to upgrade RAM on it. Will 32bit be smoother than 64bit in a 4 GB RAM laptop? I have heard that 64bit softwares takes double the RAM of 32bit softwares.

    I don't think 32-bit will get you much over 64-bit. 32-bit was a nightmare of running out of address space, I think?
