MS Office 2010 : 32-Bit or 64-Bit ?

As Office 2010 Beta has already been released, both the options, 32 bit as well as 64 bit versions of Office 2010 are available for download. Now, many of the curious folks are wondering if 32 bit version is better or 64 bit ?

Here are some critical facts to help you decide which version you should go for…!

You should go for 64 bit version of Office 2010 only if….

  • You’re a hardcore professional who often works upto to the upper limit(2GB) of Excel workbooks. 64 bit version helps you work beyond the normal memory limit of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and other MS Office apps.
  • You’re extremely careful about your data and want additional security through Data Execution Prevention (DEP) technique
  • You have a 64 bit Windows Vista/7 already

You should opt for 32 bit version of Office 2010 if….

  • You either possess a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows Vista/7
  • You don’t want to face any sort of incompatibility issues with ActiveX controls(almost all of them are written for 32 bit Office version)
  • You don’t need an exorbitant amount of memory space when it comes to working with Office apps.
  • You don’t want your graphic elements to render slow and want everything light and fast

Final Verdict : In most cases, you will be satisfied with a 32 bit version. 64 bit version will not be of much use.
