John Howard : 64-bit Rocks! John Howard says 64 bit computing rocks. I’m really looking forward to buying a 64 bit machine myself. Unfortunately as John points out though MCE won’t be 64 bit compatible until Vista. I’m beginning to see a crystalization of the perfect time to upgrade computers as the convergence of Vista, 64 bit computing, 2 terrabytes of storage and (hopefully) CableCARD support in MCE Vista. It just could be the ultimate machine — along with a few XBox 360s floating around the house.
