off topic - Why not 64 bit software? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Well, Related Questions (64 bit architecture) may have addressed my issues for the nonce, but check this out.  I purchased the 1st of my two network-pc's with XP Pro X64 / AMD single processor envisioning future upgrade to multiple processors.  Some years later HP offers me a PC with twin processors ( ! ) AND vista ULTIMATE....."Sir, HP will no longer offer XP Pro X64, but we WILL offer AMD twin processor and Vista Ultimate O/S!"   Nogururu decided instead to spring for the twin processor and RIP OUT, excuse me, downgrade, to XP Pro. 

    My grandchildren and I find simulations very entertaining, I'm excited by computer graphics as Art Form and there's an NIH Project called Human Genome Map which uses Distributive Computation by the public at large.  My dream would be to install Suse Linux as a 2nd operating system and go map some human genomes.

    PS I think WLOC has it right, this from someone recovering from Kaspersky Internet Protection.
