    To be honest, I'd much rather see more 64-bit and some 128-bit support than see 32-bit support. I mean, I haven't seen a "new" computer with a 32-bit only processor (except for maybe netbooks) since ~2007. Sometimes, you just have to break down, drive into town, and buy a 5 year old used PC at Goodwill (or other thrift store).

    :)

    I tried installing Lotus Millenium Edition release 9 on Windows 10 64 bit, it installed but not of the applications would launch. Maybe because Lotus still uses some 16 bit code, it doesn't work, you might have better luck with the 32 bit version if it currently
    works in Windows 7 32 bit on your system (if that is what you are running).

    Oh wow, I heard about this rumor of Windows 9 like three years ago. That might be interesting to see if this is true...

    If that is true, that's going to be a HUGE HUGE problem for recently built Intel Atom based tablets that are running 8.1.1....

    Those Atom based tablets are running 64-bit quad core processors, not the original Atom processors.

    I don't think the issue will be a the inability of 32-bit processors to run the newer OS. I've seen posts by people that were upset because they couldn't run their old 16-bit software because 64-bit Win 8.x didn't support it. I'd hate to see the uproar if 128-bit Win 9 couldn't run 32-bit software.

    Not quite all of them. I know for sure the ASUS T100 Transformer is a 32 bit system. That made me keep a 32 bit version of Windows 8.1.1 Core in a VM to cook custom images because I've had to deploy that out a couple of times now, all on new Windows 8 PCs.

    This has me thinking that it could possibly be true even though there are a lot of 32 bit based Atom tablets out there. There's speculation that in 9, tablets smaller than 10 inches will be sans Desktop. My guess is on this, there will be a SEPERATE Windows SKU intended for those tablets and will be the only 32 bit Windows 9 platform available. Only THOSE specific tablets will be able to get that version to upgrade to.

    For everyone else and every other PC, it's 64 bit only.

    I say hooray because 32 bit versions of Windows aren't as secure as 64 bit counterparts and perform much better as well. Downside is obviously the loss of 32 bit only software and hardware. Printers that came out 10 years ago might not be able to work if the manufacturer hasn't been keeping up on driver software (cough cough Dell). It'll probably require virtual machining for that to happen. Makes me also wonder if 9 will have an updated Hyper-V set up, as in Windows 7's xp Mode, to enable the use of the legacy software and hardware...

    But I've yet to see or hear of ANYTHING 128 bit....

    First, "Welcome to the 9 Forums". . .*Thumbs now, second I was being satirical, albeit I truly could care less if people can or cannot afford to get a 64 bit system. If that sounds mean then so be it. . .

    Given how bad printers manufacturers are (in general), I wouldn't be surprised if printers that are only a few weeks old won't run when connected to W9. *Sad

    We have a Samsung Laser Printer and the instruction manual doesn't match the actual printer (instructions and some of the diagrams)!

    Every link I followed just says "reports" said 64 bit only but none list an actual source, so I am calling this BS.

    Next week some one will say they heard it on "Nine Forums" so it must be true.
