    Renaming suggestion

    My suggestion is to rename this to '64-bits Windows', for all version Windows that ever came out for 64-bit (2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8.0, 8.1 and presently 10).

    Thanks! I'm now hunting my software collection for that elusive Win 2000 64-bit beta...might turn out to be for another architecture than x64 though: IA-64 (Intel Itanium)...

    Alpha even:
    Intel shipped the first prototypes of its 64-bit Itanium (formerly code-named Merced) chip to its partners in September, but Alpha already ran 64-bit software. At the time that Compaq was abandoning further 32-bit Alpha development, the company hoped to continue development for 64-bit Win2K on Alpha. Rumors suggested that Microsoft was contemplating releasing 64-bit Windows on Alpha first. And while Compaq and Microsoft were making the decisions about the future of 64-bit Win2K on Alpha, Cutler's team was booting the first versions of 64-bit Win2K on an AlphaServer (a classic Allan Janus project).
