Hey all,

What is the difference between these, other than obvious bit thing.

Why can't vista have the IE764bit as a selection in the start menu properties?

There's an open bug at sun for a 64-bit java plugin thats unresolved for over 5 years now. There is no flash or acrobat reader support either. On linux you can use the nspluginwrapper to load flash and acrobat and it works [mostly]. There is the icedtea plugin for java which is 64-bit and about 50% reliable. I don't think there are any workarounds for 32 bit plugins to work on a 64 bit windows browser, but I could be wrong.

Basically no proprietary support for 64-bit ATM.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
