Linux Complaining about Windows Vista is a national past time on Internet forums these days. Windows Vista 'costs too much', 'has onerous product activation', 'requires too much hardware', etc. These complaints are often followed up by a very simple boast: 'I'm just going to switch to Linux'. But in today's landscape, how viable is that statment? Is the threat to switch to Linux an empty one, or is it entirely possible?"

...BUT! If we didn't have 64-bit now, there would be no incentive to make those 64-bit programs. Without which, there'd be no need for the hardware. Which wouldn't be developed then, as there would be no use - you'd have nothing to run on it.

Hardware has tossed out the eggs. Let the chicken be a chick first, so when it comes time to use 64 bit, we're all set up.

I want my 64-bit mIRC program!!!!!
