Microsoft Ships Windows x64

These operating systems are set to function on AMD’s and Intel’s 64-bit microprocessors and cost the same as the 32-bit versions of the OS. Finally we get a Windows tailored to the chips, but early adopters beware. Since this is basically a re-write of the OS, all the drivers need to be re-written as well.
