Whichever distribution you choose, use the 64-bit edition of it if you can.
Go programs usually run faster on 64-bit, and garbage collection is more
reliable.
I think that with the new improvements on the GC this they are be
reliable on both.

But even if they are equivalent, the 64 bit version is faster and most
server deployments this days use 64 bit processors. No need to stick
with 32 bits unless you have a specific use-case.
