Order time for x64 is absurd...

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Billie Volkova, Jun 29, 2005.

  1. I've had my copy ordered for well over a month now (after they finally
    accepted my PID/COA) and it's still stuck on "you will be charged when
    dispatched blah blah blah". The even better part is that the card I used to
    make the order will expire as of tomorrow because hey, let's face it, who
    expected to be waiting this long, and I will also probably be changing
    address soon. Will this mean waiting all over again..?
    Come on Microsoft. We could've gone out and bought OEM copies and have them
    delievered from overseas in less than half the time it is taking to get
    order requests to go through.

    Not exactly free when you have to give up your x86 license. At least he
    knows what he is going to have with only x64 on his system.

    Even those of us who ordered the first day have not received our discs yet.
    You're in the same boat as the rest of us.

    Yes, actually. I ordered mine April 25th, and still "Order has been
    received..."

    What is this talk about order time? I thought Windows x64 was availible for
    download for those with XP 32-bit?

    It has been released, has it not?

    Are you waiting for a Exchange Server for x64 Server operating systems? Or a
    client for x64 XP?

  11. The next version of Exchange, code named Exchange 12 will be compatible with
    Server x64.

    i have waited about five weeks for my order and the only thing that ha
    changed on the order update is that it has been ordered,so i guess i
    will be another 4 weeks before dispatch( hopefully in that time ther
    should be some more updated drivers for xp64)i have sent microsoft
    email today inquiring about the order and if i get a reply with an
    news of a dispatch or delivery date i'll let you all know.:
