    Question [Help] Confusion on Kali Linux Iso Image..... 32bit or 64 bit ?

    Hi guys , new here.......

    I want to ask a basic question .....

    i saw the image size of 32 bit image and 64 bit image of kali linux ...... but why 32 bit size is greater then 64 bit ?
    generally 64 bit size big then 32 bit then why it's smaller then 32 bit ? is some tools removed from 64 bit ?

    They all 32 and 64bit distros are the same, all tools included...Unless you use the mini ISO.

    As to "basic question", I would call it "pointless"..

    As far as I know, the tools are all the same in 64 bit or 32 bit.

    However, the size might be bigger because of the "compression."

    32-bits (maybe?) can't compress an ISO file better than 64-bits which makes the size greater than the 64-bit version. But you shouldn't be more concerned about it though unless you're a wanna-be "excellent programmer."

    I've just checked, seems Fedora 32bit DVD is bigger than 64-bit. http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora#formats

    Interesting observation though.

    When goes to 32 or 64, more apps are available for 32 that 64. I got 64 computer, but using 32bit Kali.
