Thanks for the response. My question was comparing the performance stata under the two OS, something the FAQ does not address (at least that I could find). So I am interested in hearing about anyone's pratical experience comparing Linux and 64-bit Win

Re: problems with 64 bit Win: I had read that 64-bit win either runs 32-bit programs more slowly or not at all. I have no experience with it myself so I do not know this to be true.

Please read the FAQs titled "What are the hardware requirements to run
Stata?" and
"What kind of performance increase can I expect in going from 32-bit
to 64-bit Stata?" at
http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/win/64bit2.html and at
http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/win/pcreqs.html. What "bad things"
are you referring to?
