64 Bit, Baybee!

5 April 2005 15:07

As mentioned last Thursday, I managed to download the final release version of Windows XP Professional x64 Edition from the MSDN's Subscribers' website and had it installed since then. While it isn't exactly the best thing since sliced bread yonder, it was certainly good to know that the experience was unlike with the Itanium box I had about a year ago where the only application that I can run on it was the 64 bit edition of SQL Server 2000. This time, it was able to run almost quite everything that I could shake a stick at. I'm still missing the 64 bit version of the video capture device in my box so I'm putting this in the backburner for a bit and have this installation GHOST-ed until the driver is out.

It was nice to know that someone has compiled anx64 version of Mozilla Firefox. Sweeet!

Here's the output when you run "uname -a" "winver.exe". The build number shown is the final release version of it.
