I recently installed the 32-bit version of openSUSE on a AMD Sempron 3600+. Before bothering installing the 64-bit version in stead I’m thinking about running a few tests to rerun on the 64-bit install and then compare the systems.

Just about the only idea I have is compressing and uncompressing very large amounts of data and time it. Any other suggestions? Windows has plenty of geeky software for this type of thing, but how about a Linux thing? Preferably with a neat RPM.
OS: Linux i686
System: openSUSE 10.3 (i586)
KDE: 3.5.7 "release 72.2"
ATI Technologies Inc: Model: ATI RADEON 9600 Series (RV350/RV360 4150)
Driver: fglrx (3D)
RAM: 1.011,4 MB
