I want to download ubuntu 12.04 for my 64-bit machine. Is ubuntu 12.04 available for 64-bit machines? If yes, how and from where should I download? Otherwise which is next best OS?

    http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

    On that page click the dropdown and select 64bit.

    Linux had 64bit years before Microsoft did. Most distros have a 64bit version along side the 32bit. I'd venture a guess that there are almost NO distros that don't offer a 64bit version.

    Yes! Both 32 and 64 bit Ubuntu is published to the Ubuntu website and available for download. Give it a try!

    The official Ubuntu website: http://www.ubuntu.com

    It certainly is!

    You can get it from the standard Ubuntu download page: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

    Click the "Choose your flavor" box on the page and select 64-bit.

      Is that for intel processor? The size given there is 698MB is that correct?
      Thanks for your answer

        Yes -- Intel or AMD, works for both.
