64-bit Windows on Its Way

According to CNET.com, the 64-bit version of Windows desktop operating system should be available at the beginning of April; the server version at the end of April. AMD has been manufacturing 64-bit chips for 18-24 months. When this Windows version is released, these chips will be able to access 64 bits of memory at one time; current 32-bit operating systems can only access 32 bits simultaneously. This should also raise the amount of RAM from 4gb to 8gb. One possible problem has already been dealt with — you should still be able to run 32-bit applications using 64-bit Windows.
