Windows Paul Thurrott takes a long look at Vista. "It's hard to put Windows Vista in perspective. On the one hand, the product has been in development for over five years, which means that Vista had one of the longest development cycles in the 20+ year history of Windows. Paradoxically, Windows Vista is both revolutionary and evolutionary. While it includes modern OS features, such as a new hardware-based graphical user interface, Vista will also feel like familiar territory, for the most part, to anyone that's already familiar with Windows XP. And Mac advocates can claim, truthfully, that many of Vista's best features appeared first on Mac OS X, sometimes years ago."

I remember reading here that NT ran on PowerPC, MIPS, Alpha, and x86 in released versions.

Apparently the i860 and SPARC versions never were released.

I saw a 64-bit version of Windows 2000 advanced server running 64-bit sql server at pc expo at the javits center in 1999. It never got released either.

I think Win2K was the first 64 bit windows based on what I saw.
