No no no. If that was the case, why would all of us have A64s?
Currently there are no real 64-bit Operating Systems out there. Windows XP has a 64-bit version, but its more like a 64-bit emulator than a real 64-bit OS. Windows Vista, due next year is going to be the very first 64-bit OS and will have tons of new features.
Athlon 64s are...as it says in the title, 64-bit processors. Regular Windows XP and Windows 2000 can't take advantage of the 64-bitness of the A64s. However, the 32-bit OSes works just fine with 64-bit processors.
That clear things up?
Oh and thanks for the awesome link Wedge.
