Taking the mystery out of 64-bit Windows

Dear Viewers,

Most of you I assume are using Windows, (whatever version), as the OS in your computer.

Most of you have also heard about Windows 32-bit and 64-bit versions, (just a comment here, Widows XP only comes in the 32-bit version except in some very remote applications). Do you guys and girls know what is the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit?

You computer "gurus" who might read this blog, I am sure know the difference between these two versions, however, possibly most of the other readers, don't.

If you’re shopping for a new computer, chances are you already have enough to consider without wondering whether you should buy a computer with a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 7.

There’s no need to fret. For most people, there’s little reason to think about this choice when you’re making your next computer purchase. That’s good, since many people don’t understand the difference between a PC running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows, and the version they choose won’t make a big difference in most cases.

Microsoft has a Web site that is very interesting and explains in simple language what this is all about. Click on the following address and make yourselves experts on the subject:

If you have questions, you can always contact me for clarification.
