I'm glad Microsoft is releasing a Hammer OS. This is just what the world needed - an x86-64 CPU - finally!

So, we'll have an OS. Maybe it'll have 64 bit Freecell so we have we'll have at least one program to run in 64 bit.

ken4kne - don't be so sure. I expect a large amount of support for x86-64. Even more interesting to me is the fact AMD is finally strong enough to use their own instruction set instead of following Intel. AMD RULEZ!!!!!
