But you left out the next Q&A:

        Has Microsoft tested it internally?=20
                We've tried it internally, and it's substantive.=20

That link gets cludged...
Here is the key paragraph on

3p4
,00.html

Bob Muglia Microsoft Windows Chief said:
"The interesting thing is some of these scenarios are memory-constrained =

by the kernel and how much space it needs to take and use. So just by=20
having the kernel go 64-bit, you get a capacity improvement. Let me give =

you an example of a service that just benefits phenomenally with 32-bit=20
applications running in a 64-bit world. Terminal Server today on these=20
new four-way and certainly eight-way systems is completely constrained=20
by the amount of memory that can be used, because each user session uses =

a fair amount of memory. Each of them is like a client. So in a Terminal =

Server world, by going to the 64-bit operating system, even though=20
Office and the apps that are being run are only 32-bit, you can get a=20
lot more of those on simultaneously. All of a sudden, we explode the=20
number of simultaneous users that a server can support. "

AND then
Q. Do you know any customers who have tried it?
A. "Too early."

This doesn't sound to me like they have done a whole lot of testing with =

this theory to support those claims.
