I know it, the writing is certainly on the wall.
Shopping for processors I can see all the new AMD 64's down there in the
$70-$90 dollar range. (I don't want to shell out over $200 for a high end
But I still fear the 64 bit processor. I'm running a lot of high end
applications (Java, Eclipse, Transgaming's WineX, etc...) and I am unsure how
well this is going to work in the 64 bit world.
Are my fears unfounded?
