    Re: 2011 32 bit systems becomes junkies...

    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.

    remember kiddies: sudo rm -rf= BAD!, if someone tells you to do this, please ignore them unless YOU WANT YOUR SYSTEM WIPED

    Actually I think that will be one of the things that will kill 32-bit. Even thought the economy is bad is is cheaper for Intel and AMD to only produce one architecture for consumer computers. If given the choice, they will choose to progress to 64 as it is well supported on the market.

    Secondly, I don't think that Microsoft will continue 32-bit support in Windows in the next release. In Vista they finally dropped the last vestiges of DOS and Win16 entirely, so it will not surprise me if their next move is a totally .NET based platform in Windows 8 that will be 64-bit. Plus making such a move would reduce development costs by not having to maintain all that old code.
