comment What a 64 bit Linux can do that 32 bit linux can't?
Adding to John Siu's comment, I would question any host that would setup a server with a 32-bit OS knowing that it was getting 32GB of RAM. A desktop system would even be questionable but definitely not with a server.

comment Any reason NOT to run Linux in a VM all the time?
In addition to all of the excellent answers already provided, I would just say that with the current environment you could lose your Linux setup if your Windows ever becomes corrupted due to a virus or other Windows security hole. Just something to be aware of.
