    Exclamation Windows 8 & Windows 9 Kernels to Support 128-bit Architecture?

    "There was a time when Microsoft’s focus with the Windows 7 release was to support 64-bit only. Now, that focus has been pushed forward to Windows 8. Whether or not the Windows 8 release will see support for 64-bit only is yet to be determined, but I’ve stumbled upon a rather eye-opening Microsoft Research project: 128-bit architecture compatibility with the Windows 8 and Windows 9 kernel.

    Naturally, 128-bit is the next step up from 64-bit and though it had to happen at some point, I’m surprised to see this surface so soon (and when I say, “surface,” I mean, “go public”).

    Robert Morgan, Senior Research and Development at Microsoft, has posted the following bit of experience on his LinkedIn profile:

    Experience
    Senior Research & Development
    Microsoft
    Public Company; MSFT; Computer Software industry

    January 2002 – Present (7 years 10 months)



    Working in high security department for research and development involving strategic planning for medium and longterm projects. Research & Development projects including 128bit architecture compatibility with the Windows 8 kernel and Windows 9 project plan. Forming relationships with major partners: Intel, AMD, HP and IBM.
    So, not only is Microsoft Research on top of this, but it appears they are forming relationships with some heavy-hitters, namely Intel, AMD, HP and IBM."

    Good move. So, Windows 8 will ship with 64 & 128-bit flavors.

    I was reading about this earlier and wondering if this is the signal for the end of 32bit computing now,

    that is an awesome futuristic thinking of Microsoft ....
    in btw : do 128bit architecture supported processors are developed yet or in development process ??

    I think that Virus makers will have a very hard time with 128 bit Windows OS

    I don't think...if 128 app could be coded easily, coding virus program won't be difficult job.

    IMO Virus is also well written program to tease users.
