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."

How does the average user benefit from being forced to use a 64 bit machine?
Well, the next Windows version will require 10GB of ram and 1GB+ videocard just to run notepad.

Anyway, i did the transition to 64bit 3 years ago.
And i don't bother about the Windows future either, because i use Linux ;)
