    do u think vista will brin about the total adoption of vista ? im pretty sure the large majority of new machines will ship with the 64 ver. since thats pretty much the only processors that will run it anyway.

    while im sure the legacy stuff will still be written for 32bit for at least a couple years, vista will probally mark the true dawn of the 64bit revolution.

    what does everybody else think ?

    Total adoption won't be achieved for a good decade or so. But market acceptance (i.e. good driver support and quite a lot of native x64 software) will occur around mid to late 2007 I reckon (assuming a January launch.)
