Frankly, the 32/64 bit Pup was/is not a real choice... the CPU manufacturers made that change for us. Puppy had no other choice but to make 64b OS's so that newer CPU/MPU could take advantage of a 1% speed increase. Naturally 64b OS's exclude 32 bit CPU/MPU... and that was the true aim of the other OS developers.

Is hyperthreading activated in all Puppies
Interesting discussion. Made me think, "How do you know that hyperthreading is in use or not?" You can easily find out if the CPU is capable of it but you are not certain if it is actually using it.
Anyhow after reading about various commands and Python scripts, I came across this http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59771 Puppy followers had the easiest answer which is to use htop. I wanted to see if it was in use on a Slacko that was on a single core Atom CPU Acer Aspire One and found out that it was.
