Hey guys, I was wondering how many years it will take before 64BIT processors become mainstream. Not mainstream with all the hardcore users, but with everyone...where most people have 64BIT and most programs are 64BIT only.
My reasoning is because I could buy an amd64, or a faster p4 for the same price. I will keep said computer for about 3 years before moving on. Would I even see much 64BIT applications by then? And by then and amd64 would be pretty darn slow in 3 years.
Anyone got any educated guesses?
