    You hear good.
    At some point in time 32 bit machines will not longer be...
    The same for 32 bit software.

    Substantiation?
    I would like to buy a machine with an 8 bit
    processor and some 8 bit software to go with it.
    Please point me in the right direction.
    All things come to pass.

  4. Right now its only server focused, forth coming applications such as the
    next version of Exchange Server "12", Centro Mid Market Server, Longhorn
    Small Business Server and Longhorn Server R2 will be exclusively 64 bit.
    Microsoft betting this on the pervasiveness of 64 bit hardware next year
    beyond.

  5. Bill Gates announced at a major IT conference in Spain earlier this month
    that some future versions of Windows server products would only be available
    on 64-bit platforms. Specifically:

    Windows Server Longhorn R2 (But _not_ the initial Longhorn Server release)
    Exchange 12
    Windows Small Business Server Longhorn (_initial_ LH release)

    Notice that this does not say anything about client releases. The earliest
    release on this list is probably Exchange 12, and that won't be out until
    2007 at the earliest from what I've heard.

    eBay is the place, just bought a BBC Micro, brilliant :)))

    Add 'GoMMC' and you have space for every program ever written for it.

  7. Also, I forgot to mention that the Longhorn Server R2 release is not
    expected until 2009, the initial release of Longhorn Server though will be
    available in both 32 and 64 bit versions.

  8. A BBC Micro emulator is a lot cheaper and takes up less space :)

  10. On the server side, Windows Server codenamed Longhorn may be the last
    available for 32-bits. Vista will be available for 32-bits but no
    announcement has been made concerning client operating systems after Vista.

  11. Yup. And SBS -- now absolutely NOT supported on x64, will now be ONLY
    supported on x64. And that with the initial LH release.

  12. Well, as Colin said, not with the initial release of Longhorn Server, which
    is expected 2007, the Longhorn Server "R2" release expected sometime in 2009
    will be exclusively 64 bit. Longhorn Small Business Server as you mentioned
    will be 64 bit all the way!
