Just to verify; Longhorn is NOT the codename for the 64 bit edition of Windows. Windows XP 64 Bit Edition is just another version of Windows XP. Longhorn will be a redesigned operating system to come out in 2006/2007.

Windows XP 64 Bit Edition is a completely different operating system from Windows Longhorn.
