Windows XP 64-bit, a virtual minefield?
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 4/28/2005 08:43:00 PM.

Some pessimistic(looks like realistic) view of the state of 64 Bit Windows XP Platform ...

Granted, you’ll have to give it to Microsoft for often being overly optimistic about their accomplishments. As honestly what other company would be pitching a product that’s been delayed by almost two years and features nothing new but for 64-bit support like it is a quantum leap from the 32-bit version of Windows XP? In truth the 64-bit version of Windows XP is far from that, at best it is a Windows kernel with 64-bit extensions that works on a handful of systems with a very specific hardware configuration, or to be specific on hardware that has working 64-bit drivers.

I say this with caution as the fine print in the press release states that only a ‘limited number’ of peripherals is natively supported by the operating system, due to lack of a driver. For all of your other 64-bit driver needs you’ll have to look towards the manufacturer of your motherboard, graphics or sound card, printer, scanner, etc. to write a 64-bit driver.
