    2011 32 bit systems becomes junkies...

    Hi, I just wanted to make a post about future computer stuff.

    I read on a AMD fourm that cpus by 2011 will be using 128 bits and will be capadable with 64bit systems only. It indicates that 32bit systems will be no longer supported by 2011.

    I just want people here thinking to buy a computer to try and get a 64bit system if they need to buy the computer right away or wait till 2011.

    They were talking about crazy stuff for 2011 computer systems. Like 29 gigs or ram max.

    Here is another fourm talking about it: http://forums.legitreviews.com/about18466.html

    They even said that microsoft is already working on windows 8 and windows 9 which will have 128 bit versions.

    I would like to hear what you guys here on ubuntu think about this?

    what will linux do in the upcoming years?

    With 2011 only 14 months away and 64bit systems not fully advantage taken of i call bull.

    +1 on that! How many basic web servers probably run on 32-bit systems? Plus, since the laptop market always lags behind the desktop market in terms of system strength (for obvious reasons of compactness, among others) virtually all companies would be hard pressed to develop laptops that can maintain a 64-bit, but especially a 128-bit system. A lot of laptops now can run 64-bit systems, but the fact that some hardware doesn't even support 64-bit yet, it seems far too early for an entirely new transition to be in the works.

    Well, I am hearing alot of stuff that indicates that by 2011 we will have 128bit systems.

    I also heard many other people say the same what you said. Like why would they do that too fast? We haven't used fully the 64bit systems.

    Yet I am heard from employees in microsoft and many other areas saying it's right now in the works. The next game consoles will have these 128bit systems under their hood.

    Here is another article about microsoft leaks about windows 8 and 9:

    http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/enterpri...-and-windows-9

    I wounder what linux would do? Are the makers of ubuntu and other linux distrib planning right now to make an OS or a new version that will support such systems by year 2011.?

    To me if this is true then I would have to say technology progression is speeding up. I mean it may seem we will skip the 64bit era. and Just go right now the 128bit era.

    TO me this news sounds exciting. I mean I wounder how good the video games will get.

    Their is alot of talk about this on the internet.

    So I would love to hear what linux developers have in development right now for 2011.?

    I personally thought microsoft will lose their shirts with windows 7. I mean if they have poor record sales. I met many people that said they will not buy windows 7. They will stick with what they have. I know people who downgraded from windows vista to windows xp and don't plan to buy windows 7 which comes out this Thursday.

    I would agree that yes I think that we should stick a while with 64bit systems.

    I currently don't own a 64bit system just nothing but 3 32bit systems.

    I am right now looking to buy 3 more computers but woundering if it would be smart to either wait till 2011 or buy a 64bit system right now.

    I heard they are more targeting businesses for the 128bit systems since it will be kinda pricy when they first arrive.

    Keep the replies coming..

    Except for some specialized areas like cryptography, I can't think of any good reason to own a 128-bit processor.

    From your link:
    it's highly unlikely that the OS will arrive until 2012 at the earliest.

    Also, i dont see the point.

    ya microsoft said either late 2011 or by 2012 windows 8 will come out.

    They are not giving a solid date. It's currently in the works.

    However AMD says' their 128bit cpus will be on the market by early 2011.

    This means AMD may be the first to release a 128bit cpu this is their plan. I am not sure if any new game console will come out by 2011. I just have a hunch the game consoles will be a 128bit system.

    Here is some other talk about it: http://forums.n4g.com/tm.aspx?high=&...mpage=1#728318

    I have been using my 64bit cpu with Debian amd64 kernel since 2003, now when are we going to 128bit?

    I bet this is going to be like when we upgraded to 32bit, and it seemed nobody wanted to stop using 16bit. Now that 32bit is on its way out, there will be complaining, just like before...

    The market will simply stop selling 32bit until 64bit is the standard. But first, all 32bit systems will go on sale so they can get off the shelves to make room for the 64bit.

    But look at the bright side. With many 32bit running together, you can have one nice system.

    But still 64bit still lacks the support it needs, 128bit seems like a pipe dream right now.
    But there is one reason why I dont think 32bit will die in 2011:
    The economy
    If it stays at this rate the economy will prove bad for new standards.
