Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
Sales of the 64 bit version of Windows Vista are starting to accelerate. In fact, they’ve more than tripled the past three months. You can get more information on what’s happening at http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/windows-vista/compare-editions/64-bit-ready.aspx.
I was digging around on the site to look at the application compatibility search area. the Windows Vista Compatibility Center is of course designed for looking up 32 bit applications. But my 64 bit friends, you can search for 64 bit compatible applications by using the advanced search at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/AdvancedSearch.aspx.
Now is that cool or what? I would be really tickled if it included a drop down selection or check box for Windows Server 2008. Anyway, this is a great new way to check and see if an app you are interested in has been tested.
