I found out what Suse 9.1 is -- a version of Linux. At X1000forums.com they have an entire area on Linux and someone there has even released an X1000/ZT3000 version of Linux there.

How, HP has introduced for the first time a version of Linux that is preloaded on a HP notebook.

People at X1000forums.com are always discussing among themselves how to get various hardware working properly(particularly the Winbond SD card drive and wi-fi, etc).

So, yes, 64bit is definitely valuable with Linux now but I did not make the connection with Suse 9.1 (as Linux) until I saw this brand (version) of Linux posted today at X1000forums.

But for most mainstream XP users (and XPprofessional) the main 64bit uses right now as the XP2 hardware virus and worm cpu detection options for the Athlon chips only (as Intel has no consumer 64bit cpu out yet).

XP64 is here and now.

I may have a slight advantage since I've seen it and it's very nice. It's a free download and the license from Microsoft is 1 year free. Microsoft does not want 64-bit owners to walk away from MS on this one.

Windows Updates are available and more.

As to Intel, they are revising their 64-bit plans. Watch the 64-bit extensions to the Xeon and then watch as it migrates into the HT-64.

As to AMD, it was a smart move on their part to get 64-bit in an usable form for us.
