I have heard a lot of fuss about 64 bit. Will leopard be fully 64 bit and will 32 bit programs work?
Leopard is fully 64 Bit and it supports 32 Bit applications.
Thanks, One more thing, does Bootcamp support 64bit vista and will 64bit vista support 32bit programs?
64-bit Vista supports 32-bit programs, but not 32-bit drivers. Unfortunately there's a lot of Windows "programs" that are a collection of both, so quite a large amount of Windows software doesn't currently work properly on the 64-bit versions.
At the moment the bundled Boot Camp drivers from Apple are 32-bit, so unless you want to run around and get all the 64-bit drivers yourself, you're better off installing 32-bit Vista on a Mac. The hardware itself supports both.
Thanks, I'll call them Apps to save using the microsoft word Program. Really, what happened to the "me"!
Yet another AmericaniZation I suppose
I suppose Britain isn't the centre of the technology world.
In English English, two different words... one for computer program, that's the way it's always been. The other for a schedule of events.
If you want to get really picky!
Anglo-English can be a little annoying sometimes!
You're in London... Coming to the picnic? Link in my sig.
07.07.07. Wish I could, I'll be away
Any reason in particular for choosing that date!!!!!
I WANT THE IPHONE NOW!! I will hopefully have one in my pocket by then.
The U.S. is the center of the technology world. I'm not sure about the centre, though--maybe India?
oh, for example, what are the apps that fit the decription?
anyway, Yes, Vista does NOT support 32-bit drivers for most hardwares, and unfortunately most hardware drivers are now 32-bit..
Its very nice apple doesn't need to face too many hardware drivers. i just wondering, leopard is delayed several months, and apple need to make 64-bit drivers anyway, why they can't make 64-bit drivers for bootcamp?
Virus checkers and CD authoring software come immediately to mind. Anything that needs greater than the standard user-level access.
Never play games on Windows so can't comment there
the reason I asked is that most modern games need acceleration of 3D graphic card. but, well, I don't have a 64-bit copy anyway, ..
Oh man I needed a good laugh today and yours did it for me.
