I just posted the article Report: Win 8 to use 128-bit architecture.

Microsoft Windows 8, which may be released in late 2012, will be a 128-bit OS.

believe it when I see it.

Another windows in 2-3 years? Do we really need to go back to the 80’s/90’s where we had a new os every few years? XP was so rock solid for so long, hopefully Win7 will do the same?

128 bit is a natural progression. No surpsrise.
I think Win 8 more than 2-3 years away…

where are 128bit CPUs?

The only thing that pleases me about this news is that it makes it much more likely W7 is the last Microsoft operating system offering a 32-bit version.

128 bit. Another pack of peripherals with no driver support. Time to upgrade the 1 year old printer…

Upgrade to a 256 bit printer then so you’re ready for the future! :slight_smile:

I say we all go back to DOS. Screw this 64 and 128 bit crap.

We can’t. 640kb isn’t enough anymore since we embraced fancy GUI systems and bloatware.

Well… we could all learn to use Solaris… i guess…
