Hello absolute3d,

Welcome to the forums.

We can only hope, but that's what they said about Vista also. Maybe they just want to wait a while longer for people to upgrade to newer equipment. I have the equipment would just like to see my major apps come out in 64 bit.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Build 7127

I hope that future OS will be only in 64bit version, so the costs will decrease (developping only 32bit OS and programs will be cheaper) and the performances increase. I work like 3d modeller and renderer and we only use 64bit OS and programs, due to the huge RAM i really love 64bit world :P

Thanks for welcome man Have a nice day (or evening dunno) eheh

i completely agree, but i never found where he actually said that...

i mean the clues are there....
you only have to look into the news of the server editions to see the where it windows is going....

the kernel was and is almost complete by the time windows server 2008 was gold...

TG Daily - No completely new kernel in Windows 7, Microsoft says
basicly here
Sinofsky said that the Windows 7 kernel will be related to today’s Vista kernel: Windows 7 will be based on the kernel of Windows Server 2008 kernel, which is an evolution of the Windows Vista kernel.
since we know that windows vista was based on Server 2003 and as said also here...

so its only obvious that Windows 8 will based on Windows Server 2008 R2 which is completely 64bit...

so thats how i reason it....

oh and welcome to the forums....

Vista Home Premium x64 sp1-XP x64 sp2/Windows 7 x64

Yeah, but by then they'll have ddr4? and i8? to buy now to take advantage of cutting edge stuff like I did.

I bought an Acer Aspire M7720 with i7 920 cpu with 6 gigs of ram and 1 gig ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics a month £900 I ever spent I'll tell you (Runs Crysis on max settings perfectly, and GTA4). I now run vista 64bit Home Premium but I downloaded 64 bit Win 7 and it's sitting on my 1 terabyte sata 2 hard drive just waiting to be burned to dvd disk and installed...I'm gonna wait a while till the next beta release tho I think. I may go with what I've now got but I've read some conflicting reports about it.

RE: admin....nice site!

XP & Vista

Just my thoughts, what's yours?

Its price, but it also Vista system requirements. The general consensus has been that the sweet spot for Vista is 2GB of RAM. Part of that reason is integrated graphics that use system memory. That unified memory architecture crap on the low end. If its eating 256GB of memory for graphics then you need to stick a bit more memory in there to compensate.
So if you go here: Dell Inspiron 1420 Laptop Product Details

You will see that 2GB is pretty much IT with 3GB for the upper low that makes sense. :P

Well if base system are going to be shipping with 2GB, premium systems are generally going to cater to more, and usually that means double. So 4GB becomes the high end. At that point you loose access to memory and that is why 64-bit is becoming more commonplace. That isn't to say there are no other factors involved. Price, games, and lets been frank....64-bit has gotten WAY better with Vista and SP1. But I think the above plays more of a factor then anything else. IMHO of course.
