My computer has Windows 64-bit, but I'm hesitant to use 64-bit versions of programs. They often have more bugs than the more tested 32-bit versions. Does anyone if the 64-bit version has any important advantages?

Dude, you're not too far away from giving biggest bullshit excuse ever.

Dear rautamiekka, assuming the comment was necessary, I believe there's a better way to express it.

If you are a normal user, I suggest you to install the 32-Bit version of LibreOffice 5. Generally, the 64-Bit version also works, but I found it less stable and it had a few strange graphical artifacts. So far, I could not really see an advantage of the 64-Bit version for me personally. The 64-port is just new, this will likely change. Also, I have heard that people that use 64-Bit Java prefer the 64-Bit LibreOffice version due to compatibility reasons.

32-bit and 64-bit softwares can't interact with each other, and 64-bit LO was created cuz later Window$ drops WOW64, the ability to run 32-bit on 64-bit Win, and you can reach 2GB data in Calc. Besides, 64-bit is more secure.
