About the importance of being 64-bit


As member of Microsoft Partner Strategy and Platform Group I am working with ISVs and enterprise developers on 64-bit Windows migration projects.
I believe that over the next few years all hardware vendors will replace their 32-bit offerings by systems that will be capable of running 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems and applications. If you attend this year’s Intel Developer Forum IDF, don’t miss the sessions about “Future directions in 64-bit computing”.
I want to use this blog to share cool and important information about 64-bit and Windows with a wider audience and learn about other opinions and viewpoints on this topic.
