More On 64

Led Zeppelin sang “When the levy breaks you have nowhere to go”. Well the levy has broken and now just about everyone has rolled on to the x64 bandwagon. Today I got this from G.W. Micro..

GW Micro is pleased to announce the current development plans for Window-Eyes 7.1 include full support for 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 operating systems. The computer industry adoption of 64-bit CPUs has been swift, and we're working hard to make sure those customers who need access to 64-bit operating systems will not be excluded. The Window-Eyes development process is moving ahead rapidly. We expect to provide a release date and additional feature information for Window-Eyes 7.1 in the near future. In addition to 64-bit support for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, Window-Eyes 7.1 will continue to support the 32-bit versions of Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server. The 32-bit version of Window-Eyes 7.1 will be a FREE download for all Window-Eyes 7.X customers. The 64-bit version of Window-Eyes 7.1 will be available on CD only for a minimal charge for all Window-Eyes 7.X customers (a CD is required for the 64-bit version due to new installation procedures required for 64-bit operating systems). Stay tuned for more information.

Then Ai Squared went Public Beta on me shortly after I last wrote on x64. You can find this on their main page.

“Ai Squared is pleased to announce the beta release of ZoomText for 64-bit Windows Vista. If you need 64-bit OS support please contact us via e-mail for instructions on downloading this release”

And a commenter posted in the last x64 post that I forgot about Issist and their version 3.0 product lines going 64 as well. I have to admit that I haven’t looked at this product in over a year and I wasn’t a fan of the amount of memory it used in the past. So I’m going to have to look at this new version sometime soon. You can learn more about Issist by going to their site at the link below.
