Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Recommendation: Merging Linux Multidistro installer 32+64 bit into one.

It seems, that increasingly big part of the package is taken by shared components, such as: "VBoxGuestAdditions_4.1.0_BETA1.iso" (42MB) and "UserManual.pdf" (4MB).

Total shared components are at least 46 MB out of total 70 MB for "VirtualBox-4.1.0_BETA1-72578-Linux_amd64.run".

In other words, merging 32+64bit versions will still result in under-100 MB package. It will make life simpler for those who target *all* Linuxes, just like Windows users have one package.
