    I think its too early for anyone to say this is true so although i doubt it will but we just cant be sure what will happen..... but bare in mind that it has been said that M$ want to phase out 32bit and move everyone to 64bit

    I would like to take a stab in the dark here and say that it would most likely be 64bit & 128bit
    128bit is not impossible

    see the pattern??? 32bit + 32bit = 64bit..... 64bit + 64bit = 128bit

    Edit: i hadnt spotted it befor but look at the site again top rite.... Published Oct 08 2009, 04:13 PM by pthurrott

    I thank I can say without having to eat crow later that it will never happen.

    As to 128 bit who if any are putting out 128 bit systems to the every day user.

    I HIGHLY doubt that it will be in 128 bit at all. It will likely still have a x32 bit version too, for corporate compatibility (ugh).

    Don't think it will be 128 bit, software hasn't caught up to 64bit yet.

    Would hope we can move on past 32bit, but don't think Win8 will arrive without x32 compatibility.

    Well i woudnt be so sure. 64-bit OS's have a high level of support for 32-bit programs, so i think they'll just make it 64-bit, to get ppl off the old standard.

    i could see windows 8 dropping 32bit and being 64 bit only, but i think we will have to wait until 9 for 128 bit

    Were they to drop all that compatibility crap, the x64 OS would run SO MUCH better.

    Agree 100%.

    Too many people will complain if their x32 programs won't work

    I'm ready to move on

    Why would you need a 128 bit OS?
