Windows Microsoft has been thinking about Windows 8 for a while now even through the production of Windows 7. Some information has been gathered by our friends over at Ars, and all of this said information points to possible 128-bit versions of Windows 8 and definite 128-bit versions of Windows 9. Update: Other technophiles better-versed than I in this whole 64/128-bit business pointed out that it must be for the filesystem (such as ZFS described in this article) rather than the processor and memory scheme.

Advantages?

Does anyone know what the advantage a 128 bit system has over a 64 bit system? I was under the impression that we had not yet even come close to making full use of a 64 bit system, so where would the use of 128 bit system show improvements.
