Windows Earlier today, OSNews ran a story on a presentation held by Microsoft's Eric Traut, the man responsible for the 200 or so kernel and virtualisation engineers working at the company. Eric Traut is also the man who wrote the binary translation engine for in the earlier PowerPC versions of VirtualPC (interestingly, this engine is now used to run XBox 1 [x86] games on the XBox 360 [PowerPC]) - in other words, he knows what he is talking about when it comes to kernel engineering and virtualisation. His presentation was a very interesting thing to watch, and it offered a little bit more insight into Windows 7, the codename for the successor to Windows Vista, planned for 2010.

Now don't get me wrong, I agree with 64 bit being enough for a long time.

But when I first read the this, I read no one will ever need more than 64 bit for a software. ;) Is it possible that saying, we don't need it is too short sighted or arrogant?

But ya.. 64 is enough, and even the idea of 128, I'm not so sure if the advantages out way the disadvantages. Memory space available vs usage needed for a typical software is the first thing that comes to mind.
