Poll: How many bits is your operating system?
We've just put up a new poll for your voting pleasure, and in it we're quizzing you about the operating system in your main PC. Is it 32 bits, 64 bits, or are you an old-school Windows 3.1 user who doesn't need anything beyond 16 bits?
The advent of AMD's Athlon 64 processor back in September 2003 promised to accelerate the coming of 64-bit desktop operating systems, but Microsoft took an awfully long time to get the 64-bit flavor of Windows XP out the door. The situation has been rectified somewhat with Windows Vista, which launched with both 32-bit and 64-bit licenses available in the same retail package, but driver and software support may still be an obstacle for some. So, have you made the jump, or are you sticking with 32 bits for now? Feel free to head over to our poll and vote.
In our previous poll, we asked you how you felt about AMD's new Radeon HD 2900 XT graphics card. According to the results, only 16% of voters think the Radeon HD 2900 XT is "hot", compared to 39% who think it's definitely "not." The remainder—45%, the largest portion of the voting population—chose "lukewarm."
