Is that not the case? For a 32-bit build, linux-x86-sse2i is probably best, it uses intrinsics code precompiled with icc. Celeron were (are)the "mobile" cheapie CPU's, and started in 1998 so "when you assume" :) I too am not on the go 64-bit or go home band-wagon, afaik 64-bit adds more (possible) memory into the mix. I've never properly educated myself on what else 64-bit brings to the party. Other than possible memory use/size I don't see a difference with my day to day operations, but with benchmarking and overall "real" speed I can see why you'd want to go 64-bit for JtR. -rich
