Windows "It's the end of the line for 32-bit operating systems, Microsoft has proclaimed at its annual Windows Hardware Engineering conference After the software giant has gotten over its hangover from partying like it's 1999 with the release of Windows Server 2008, it will have one last 32-bit hurrah with a 'release 2' update to Windows Server 2008, and that'll be it. 32 bit CPU: if you have one, learn to love Vista - you're stuck with it.There will be no more versions of Windows - on desktop or server - that will work on 32-bit CPUs like Pentium 4 or Core Duo."

If it will take them another 5 years to develop Windows Basta (or whatever other ridiculous name MS marketing department will come up with) then I guess the decision does make some sense since 32-bit systems will be quite obsolete by than.

LOL. Windows Basta? watch out buddy, you maybe modded down for near profanity. Don't worry, you have a vote from me:)

MS could use 2 letter names, it's so cool. So Windows BS more like fits the bill.

"Windows Basta"

Ha haaaa! Funnier in Spanish, and not at all profane. But it perfectly expresses my sentiments for Windows- "Ya basta!"
