Default Re: Microsoft predicts majority of Win7 will be 64 bit

The problem on the Windows front for 64 bit applications is software companies being lazy. In Linux its actually been a viable option to switch to 64 bit since the A64 was released simply because all that you need to do is recompile basically to have support for 64bit. Actually, the biggest factor in holding off switching to 64bit in Linux was Adobe refusing to support it and having to install a **** load of 32bit dependencies just to have flash player working.
