Link: Why you should be thinking 64 bits instead of 32

David Berlind seems to be wondering why 64 bit isn't getting everyone as excited as he thought it would. The answer is pretty obvious, I think: for most of us, the current systems are pretty close to fast enough, and the applications mostly have yet to be written to show any significant difference on the wider platform.

Who was it that said "there's just no 'there' there" ? When it was 16 bit vs. 32, there were plain gains to be seen. The advantage here is murky at best, and has some negative aspects too if you have to still support 32 bit apps - and that's pretty much a given right now.
