I'd bet Windows 8 will be 64-bit only; in three years there won't be many PCs with < 4GB of RAM.

Ralph, you may want to follow the developing comments at http://tech.slashdot.org/story/09/10/08/1432228/Microsoft-Leaks-Details-of-128-bit-Windows-8?art_pos=2

"Robert Morgan is working to get IA-128 working backwards with full binary compatibility on the existing IA-64 instructions in the hardware simulation to work for Windows 8 and definitely Windows 9"

FYI, almost all 64 bit versions of Microsoft Windows currently deployed make use of the AMD64 architecture, not the Intel Itanium (IA64) architecture.

Except for the Itanium versions, of course. I wonder if the comment about Robert Morgan is actually referring to an Itanium 128 bit version.
