Windows Server 2003 x64/ Windows XP Professional x64
We’ve just announced the beta customer preview program for Windows Server 2003 x64 and Windows XP Professional x64. This supports the new hybrid 32/64-bit architecture that AMD released a while ago (Opteron), and Intel just released (Intel Xeon with Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology, or EM64T). It allows both 32-bit and 64-bit apps to run on the one platform. Server version will be available in Standard and Enterprise Editions.
