This looks reall awesom for the AMD 64-bit users out there, its a new OS made around the AMD 64-bit I guess its microsofts way of saying "thank you" because AMD made the XP edition for microsoft.

But anywayz I wanna get a version of the Windows XP 64-bit it looks pretty good

Soon im upgrading my computer anywayz

The reason I say it looks sweet is that I have an eval copy. Now, as it is just an evaluation copy with no updates and possibly some major bugs, my A64 laptop (which is fast now with reg WinXP) ROCKED with Win64...it was 10 times faster than reg WinXP, and thats even with beta drivers!

Ya really dont...at least not yet.

All drivers need to be 64 bit...finding those right now is next to impossible, and the ones that are out and beta! Its nice to start up and try a few things out, but then you find yourself bored thinking..."I wonder if solitair works in 64 bit" lol

When the mainstream Win64 comes out, and the hardware makers get on the ball with 64 bit drivers...THEN will be the time to get the new edition

Right now i dont know the changes between the 64 bit OS and the 32 bit OS, but the Processor its self looks sweet with up to a 1600 FSB i think, and add the OS in there would be nice, i better start reading up, although i dont like the fact that any bugs wont be fixed for quite a while for the Windows 64 bit.

System Specs:
AMD XP 2600+ Thoroughbred-B core @ 333mhz FSB
Soyo SY-KT400 Dragon Lite
Corsair 1GB DDR PC3200
80GB WD, 120GB Maxtor
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Gamer
NVidia Geforce FX 5700 Ultra DDR2
Windows XP Pro SP1

Looks cool, im curious is the next version of windows (Longhorn) is going to have a 64 bit version. So far the Alpha and Pre-Alpha versions are 32 bit, but are super slow, on my computer anyway. (Uses about all 512 MB of memory with no programs running)

64 bit is the whole premise for Longhorn.

Sweet, I wonder when there releases will be 64 bit? My guess is not until at soonest beta 2. Not enough people are running 64 bit yet. Anybody know when intel is going to make a home 64 bit processor?
