i think 2005. If u have a 64bit CPU like the AMD64, Intel Itanium or AMD operon it processed twice the amount of data per clock cycle

it is out already. Windows 64-BIT edition.

problem is that, you'll have only windows as 64-BIT, not others, at the max you'll get MSN or small softwares turned out sa 64-BIT versions. so you cannot achieve 100% benefit.

there isnt any much price difference in 64-BIT and 32-BIT Windows XP.
