Is this dude sponsored by Intel? Why would someone go through these kind of efforts to find out a 64bit app is a tiny bit slower as the 32bit version? Maybe some people were shocked to find Opteron on 64bit was a lot faster as when running in 32bit mode. Why would someone create FUD about 64bit being slower as 32bit when Opteron currently is pulling _all_ bricks out of Intel's backyard??
remember this quote? :
A thirty-two bit extension and GUI shell to a sixteen bit patch to an eight bit operating system originally coded for a four bit microprocessor and sold by a two-bit company that can't stand one bit of competition."

Here's another one :
a.k.a. Itanic. An incompatible sixty-four bit extension to a thirty-two bit Pentium 4 CPU created by a company who's previous CPU was called Pentium 5 and presumably also cannot count upwards in performance."
