Re: [K12OSN] Are You Ready for a 64-Bit PC?

Linux aleady supports both AMD and Intel 64-bit chips and I would
imagine that it would not be difficult to port the LTSP package over to
64-bits.  Linux could be in the uniquie position of being able to have
diskless low-end computers with minimal RAM or thin client terminal be
able to run the latest 64-bit software via a Linux terminal server!  And
because this software is open source there is no need to wait for a
large software vendor like Microsoft to “get around” to creating the
necessary software.  A small group of commited programmers who see the
need can modify and create code as needed, without having  a project
manager to wait for upper management's approval
 to  get her team working on the software.

Guess what! this should be more then easy in ltsp 4, which will be built
from sources, rather then binaries.  it's just a matter of cross
compiling everything for the 64 bit environment. also, for AMD's
Opteron, anything that can't be cross compiled, can still run in
32bits... :)
