And until now I have seen very little support for x64 when it comes to apps so practically my processor's x64 feature is useless just like all the other people who own athlon 64 and intel EMT64 processors. Personally I am not a big fan of spending 2k on computer when you can get almost all the same things for less. x64 computing is going to happen but not anytime soon.
Well I can disagree with this, what about the small group of power users that actually use their 64-bit processors, with different flavors of linux that are now 64-bit, and their apps. Applications for Science and heavy databases, Cad, Cam, Media Processing, ETC all would benefit from 64 bit processors. These applications are a very small part of the market but the average computer would not be taking advantage of their new 64-bit processor.
