comment How to check whether my Intel-based Mac is 32-bit or 64-bit
What David said - this only tells you what kernel is running. Like David, I'm using a 32-bit kernel because I need a kext that requires it, but I can run 64-bit user processes with no problem.

comment Scan lot of documents and output them in PDF
Ditto - My Epson came with similar software. If you don't have the original disk, you can usually go to the company site & download the software.

comment Is there a good Hotmail client for Mac OS X?
In a word - Yes. It is difficult to get non-Microsoft clients to work with a service that MS specifically designed to work poorly with such clients. Now that you understand the phrase "vendor lock-in," you have a choice to make - switch to a service that supports vendor-neutral standards such as IMAP, or return to the vendor that's trying to hold you hostage to their proprietary non-standards.

comment When I try to reinstall Mac OS (after wiping the partition with ubuntu) all i get is a blinking folder
If the install disc won't boot at all, that indicates a problem with the install disc itself, nothing to do with the previous Ubuntu installation. I'd check the disc over very carefully for scratches, smudges, or fingerprints.
