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."

There's still a bug

there's a bug in this news because Core Duo is a 64bit CPU

No, that is correct. The Core Duo is 32-bit. The Core 2 duo is 64-bit.

Actually he was right and wrong. There is an error in the article, but it's not about the core. The late model Pentium 4s were 64-bit.
