   Re: [xml-dev] A standard approach to glueing together reusableXMLfragmen

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

the referred article actually said that 64 bit risc was mature, but
intel 64 bit hadn't lived up to expectation and was still in it's
infancy. itanium 2 seems to have addressed some of this.

it's a bit like microsoft though. is 64 bit not legitimate unless intel
does it? and at any rate i'd be hoping that the risc people are more
than serious about 128 bit because some people are already playing with
terabyte records, let alone files - if i read the posts correctly.
