  • Remeber my post “Bifuzz and 4 GB memory barrier” ? Blibbering Humdinger posted his point of view on the subject in an article to be found here telling us that if using 64 bits there would be no such barrier.  He is advocating the idea of Haiku going 64 bits ASAP. Ingo Weinhold’s advice is going in the opposite direction as you can read in the Haiku Gazette (in german, goolge traslation here).

A nice day to you all, take care !
