Microsoft kicks off 64-bit Windows

Posted on Monday, Apr 25 2005 @ 18:37 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft today officially launched the highly anticipated 64-bit version of Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003.
The new Windows won't be showing up on retail shelves, though. Customers who buy a desktop or server with a 64-bit chip will have the option of getting the new operating system, while people who own an existing 64-bit machine will have the option of trading in their old 32-bit Windows for the 64-bit upgrade.
