Windows XP Professional x64 Edition

1. Introduction


After a few unplanned delays, Microsoft has finally released its Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. The first step into the 64-bit world was made by AMD. AMD has been waiting 3 years for this release while users who have AMD's x86-64 platform were only able up till now to take advantage of the full capabilities with the freeware Linux operating system.

For a long time, Intel had ignored the 64-Bit architecture. It is quite interesting that, a few weeks after the release of Intel's CPU with x86-64 architecture, the Windows XP 64-Bit edition has also been released. It appears as if Microsoft was holding back on its release until the new CPU was ready.

So while the x86-64 bit architecture is gaining momentum becoming more and more popular for its features and with newer CPUs like the Celeron D processors expected in the near future, it is time then to take a deep look into the new operating system from Microsoft which has promised.so much.
