Windows Microsoft has been thinking about Windows 8 for a while now even through the production of Windows 7. Some information has been gathered by our friends over at Ars, and all of this said information points to possible 128-bit versions of Windows 8 and definite 128-bit versions of Windows 9. Update: Other technophiles better-versed than I in this whole 64/128-bit business pointed out that it must be for the filesystem (such as ZFS described in this article) rather than the processor and memory scheme.

Sorry I know this ridiculous but your post made me laugh and then I got to thinking about the consequences.

I am picturing going into your a computer store and asking to purchase 260 thousand 16GB memory modules. And then getting home and realising

A) It is going to take quite some time to plug these things in.

B) You are short a few memory slots.

Good post. Thanks.

And after you get those 260 thousand modules worked out, you realize you have to make 999 more trips... ;)
