First time quickstart user/poster.

Downloaded the amd64 yesterday, presuming it would work on my Intel Mac, sadly no such luck. Downloaded the i386 version and it installed beautifully and runs smooth at first sight.

As there are probably more people who are uncertain of which version to download, may I suggest to document this in some way? It's a shame of the wasted seeding bandwidth if people just download the amd64 version, since they'll think it'll work faster.

Maybe the best way is to get some feedback on this issue post on which version of quickstart people are running on which machines (OS, hardware etc).

My specs:
Machine: MacBook Pro
Processor: 2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory: 4 GB 2067 DDR3
OS: Mac OS X 10.6.7
->Quickstart 1.0 - i386

64 bit works perfect after enabling Intel Virtualisation in BIOS and setting version to Ubuntu (64 bit) in vbox settings.

VMWare: typically give QuickStart 2 processors, 4 cores, and 6.5 G of ram.  

I speed up Drush by increasing PHP's memory_limit in the cli php.ini. From the command line run: php -i to get its location.
