I don't think 64bit is going to be as much of a jump as 16bit to 32bit 'aka Win95' for some reason. Although in theory it should be far more. Come to think of it, back then it took ages before the real benefits of 32bit were realized. It's good to see 64bit Win finally arrive though.
IIRC, if you bought an A64 computer with Windows XP pre-installed, Microsoft was going to offer XP64 as a free upgrade. I don't know if the offer still stands (we'll know for sure when it's released), but it definitely won't apply if you installed a retail copy of XP on a custom-built A64 machine.
so, Which Version is the one that those of us with AMD-64 processors want??? I have only heard a confusing jumble of claims that there are a bunch of Different WindowsXP 64 bit versions being released and that not all of them are optimized for AMD-64 processors....
(I am ashamed of myself for not keeping up with all the latest, but real-life has sort of kept me busy. All of a sudden I read that Windows 64 is being released and then I hear those nasty rumors that all is not as it seems....hmmm...So my only recourse is to scurry back to my old standby....ww.ex-perience.com (yep I was one of the original members here way, way back) which has been born again several times since....to get the REAL SCOOP.)
I love this place.
Anyways, any enlightenment you could throw my way would be much appreciated.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
