Microsoft has revealed that it will let Windows Server 2003 owners upgrade from the 32- to 64-bit version of the operating system at no additional cost. Owners will be able to exchange existing Server 2003 licenses for licenses that cover the 64-bit version of the operating system. The license exchange program only covers Windows Server 2003, although it's possible that Microsoft may offer a similar exchange program for Windows XP users.
In related 64-bit Windows news, Microsoft will release an updated beta of Windows Server 2003 for 64-bit Extended Systems that adds support for Intel's new 64-bit Xeons. The updated 64-bit Server beta will apparently hit the web today, but there's no word on whether an updated public XP-64 beta is on the way.
