    I don't suppose there's a Vista copy of Tetris?

  3. Or just get an old Game Boy emulator - they'll run on practically anything.
    Load in a Tetris ROM and there we go! :eek:)

    Didn't Microsoft have their own Version of Tetris?
    I remember one from Windows 3.1 ... it was in some "Fun Pack"..
    ...so it is a 16-bit app, and from what I've heard, this won't run on 64-bit
    Vista... (or am I completely wrong?)

  5. 32-bit processor - supports 32 and 16 bit applications.
    64-bit processor - supports 64 and 32 bit applications.

    If you can see the sequence, that's how it works... so in effect... (nobody
    get their hopes up)
    128-bit processor - will support 128 and 64 bit applications...

    .... but we're a while off that yet ;o)

  6. "so in effect... "

    I don't think anyone has a clue about 128-bit processors Andre! LOL!
    I was just trying to put it into sequence for Jens to understand it.... aye
    I should have just explained it better in the first place :eek:(

    Sorry for the consfusion folks :eek:(

  7. "128-bit processor - will support 128 and 64 bit applications..."
    Excuse, where did you get that information from? The reason why 64-bit
    Windows currently does not support 16-bit applications is simply because
    Microsoft did not add that emulation layer, because I guess, they just want
    16-bit to fade out and the resources to develop such a layer would be a
    waste. 32-Bit on the hand is more sensible since the majority of
    applications out there today are 32-bit, thats why they have a Windows On
    Windows 64 emulation layer for 32-bit applications.

    Who knows what may happen when 128-Bit computing comes around? There might
    be a maintained emulation layer for both 64-bit and 32-bit because of the
    thousands applications. Also, there won't necessarily have to be a 128-bit
    processor, since the major CPU manufacturers are moving to multiple core
    processes which basically house more processors on one die, so, the future
    maybe more about multithreaded applications, not necessarily address space.
    64-Bit supports up to 8 TBs of RAM thats a whole of memory, now imagine that
    plus a 64-bit processor with 8 cores, Intel said in the near future, we will
    have processors with up to 100 cores!

  11. If you can ping me with a good spec. Mac (seeing as I wouldn't know where to
    start), I'd really appreciate that. Remember, developer, blogger, and
    someone who likes to beat the crap out of RAM with a large stick ;o) Any
    tips, highly greatful!
