I think he only compares (speedwise) the 64bit system with x+2GB to the
same with just x, x probably being 1GB (I don't think it's lame with 2
to start with). Memory consumption wise, he seems to compare 64 bit
distro to 32 bit distro on the the same box. Firefox and Thunderbird
consume quite some memory in their 64 bit incarnations (more than twice
as much compared to 32 bit, which I would understand), for the "system"
itself it's not that bad.
