This bug report needs to be re-opened, or the bug needs to be fixed. I can't count the number of times a user has downloaded the 32-bit version because it's 'recommended', and only after wasting hours trying figure out why UEFI wouldn't work realized that 32-bit doesn't support it. Even worse scenario is the user who spends a lot of time setting up their system only to find out that their total amount of memory wasn't supported by 32-bit, again because of a recommendation that's not based on anything related to their system. If they see recommended, they're going to assume that there was some data (a system scan or something) that supports the claim. This really should be fixed soon.
