Digit LIVE news - Microsoft turning to an all 64-bit world

Digit LIVE news - Microsoft turning to an all 64-bit world

Microsoft is going 64bit. Not really a suprise, they already have server versions that only support 64bit archtiechtures, now various applications are going that route too.

Linux has already supported 64bit archtechtures for a while, and 32bit apps should run fine on a 64bit environment, now Microsoft are following suite, but making the apps 64bit too.

64bits mean more memory support and faster loading as instead of loading 32bits at a time, 64bits are which is twice the speed for no CPU speed increase.

In a couple of years you'll not be able to buy a PC that isn't 64bit so it makes sense.
