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."

Not a big deal

I would estimate the next version of Windows as coming out around 2010. For the next three years the industry will be cranking out 64-bit computers. So what's the problem? Do you really think 3 years from now we will be wanting to run Windows (if one was so inclined!) on 3-4 year old computers?? Seriously, folks.

by that time windows is going to be irrelevant and there will be more linux users than windows users, so this is not a big deal, yeah
