I just had to write something. The x64 OS RTM'ed last night. I'm upgrading all my machines to it today. It's been a long haul, and I'm quite happy that it's finally out the door.
Now I'm just trying to find an article that discusses it for more than 1 sentence. Everyone talks about Win2K3 SP1, which is fine, and all, but the x64 version of this thing is brand-spanking-new, and there's almost nothing talking about it! Anyway, I'm just happy that the OS is out there. Whidbey Beta2 is coming in a couple weeks. The combination of the two is a spectacular developer workstation: You have the ability to develop & test 32 & 64 bit apps on the same system. I love this thing!
