People Worry Too Much!  

WinOScentral - Windows XP 64-bit: List of New/Missing Features
Blogged by Meryl @ 06:51PM / Linkback

I caught this over on OS news.com and thought since the AMD 64 bit processor was due out in just a few weeks, and I KNOW some of you are chomping at the bit just waiting to have it, you might want to check this out and see what you're gaining and losing at the same time.

I think people are stressing a little too much about the content and features of the 'Next Great OS from Microsoft'. I would be very surprised to see it go gold before the summer of 2005. They're in closed beta testing, so the idea that features and performance are anything more than fluid is over-reacting, to put it mildly. They know that they can't afford to get this one wrong and they've been plagued by security flaws in current Windows versions, so I can't see tham rushing this to market without a LOT of testing, including at least a 6 month open beta.

The good part about this is that the Opteron / Athlon-64 will be nicely mature by the time this OS hits the streets!
