I have decided to try out Linux Mint instead of the horrible Ubuntu Unity experince.
I have a separate partition for my
/home folder, which I'd like to preserve of course. So I'm curious: is it possible for me to install the 64bit version of Mint without user dotfiles making trouble? More specifically, will it matter that the new OS is 64-bit? My instinct tells me - no, a config file is a config file, but I thought it would be better to check here, I simply don't want to lose all the app settings.
A more general question would be, will the user dotfiles cause any problem for Mint, regardless of bit-ness? Has this been tried by someone?
