    It is already available. It is however an OEM release so it won't be
    available at the run of the mill office supply store. You can order it from
    online vendors (they are supposed to have to sell you a hardware component
    with it but I've found a couple of sites that haven't required it) and you
    might be able to get it from your local computer parts store.

  4. I admit I was v. lucky, but just FYI I can confirm that I had my XP x64 CD
    in early May, so XP x64 final has been (kinda) available for about six
    weeks already.

    Windows XP Professional x64 was released to manufacturer (RTM) by
    Microsoft on Monday, April 25, 2005, and is currently available as an
    OEM edition only.

  7. The final build number is 1830 and is built off the Windows Server 2003 SP1
    code base.

    No legitimate vendor would risk their authorization to sell Microsoft
    product by skipping the hardware. Many add it into the price and show it
    free at checkout. Usually a cable or splitter, etc.

  9. The important thing is that it be non-Microsoft hardware, ie not a MS
    cordless keyboard or whatever, so that MS is not itself the OEM, with an
    OEM's legal obligations.

    Actually, that might be the catch 22 we have been looking for. Force
    Microsoft to support this OS. :)

  12. That's the build number of the 2k3 RTM that the OS is based on, not the
    build number of the XP x64 itself.

  13. Exactly, thats why I said it was built off the Server 2003 codebase, but if
    you were suppose add all the build numbers from April 2003 up to now, it
    would come to 1830, I think the build number from Itanium was added to it
    also which was last at 1069 in version 2003 of Windows XP 64-BIT.


    That's the build number of the 2k3 RTM that the OS is based on, not the
    build number of the XP x64 itself.

    Copied from system information.

    OS Name Microsoft(R) Windows(R) XP Professional x64 Edition
    Version 5.2.3790 Service Pack 1 Build 3790

    That's the build number of the 2k3 RTM that the OS is based on, not the
    build number of the XP x64 itself.

  17. Naw, I hear that they don't even give good support if you buy a whole sysem.
    I heard this from clients of mine that forgot to ask me first before buying
    their new computers. LOL

    P.S. I hope this doesn't offend any Dell users. :)

  19. That is just build number of the code base upon which XP Pro x64 is built.
