Ah can't wait for a widespread 64bit processor. Problem is it just won't make any difference till more apps start to support it. I'm pretty sure XP has a 64 bit version. And i know Windows Server 2003 has a 64 bit version too. I just hope these things aren't too innexpensive.

Actually, Intel may be releasing the Itanium 2, their answer to the Athlon64's. The first Itanium was a total disaster for Intel... they costed $3000 each, they ran at speeds slower than the market norm, even when running recompiled 64bit software, and there was no market adoption. Now with the Athlon 64, AMD leaned from Intel's mistakes. They vamped up the speed and made sure it ran 32-bit software just as fast as 64-bit. That's why it's been delayed for (almost) 2 years.
BTW, anyone care to post a divx version? Linux doesn't like wmvs....
|By the end of 2003, AMD, along with its industry partners, plans to make AMD64 solutions available in laptops, desktops, multi-processor workstations and servers. Servers are expected to come in 1-, 2-, 4-, and 8-way processor solutions. Soon, and for the first time, 64-bit solutions with full x86 compatibility and uncompromised 32-bit performance will be available in a wide variety of configurations for a diverse range of customers.|
