Kills the server not the messenger
Microsoft has confirmed that it will scrap the use of 32 bit for servers after Windows Server 2008.
However it has moved to distance itself from claims that future versions of Vista will also just be 64 bit.
Microsoft's Alex Heaton said the decision did not apply to Windows Client deriving that Windows Vista would be the last 32-bit operating system.
He said that was wrong and while there was a growing community of drivers for 64-bit Windows Vista, Microsoft has not decided when Windows Client will follow Windows Server and become 64-bit only.
