I dont like quick-n-dirty solutions. its a easy way to workaround problems that
to be solved. everyone say such a solution is temporary. But in fact they won't
because everybody use it. I have seen that a lot in our company. You waste more
to clean up.

Could be. i dont want to ask every single company to port their software on
They port it only if they see a way to gain money. For native 64bit environment
will have problems to get users and/or companies which use it. You get them only
you have the apps they need (open or proprietary). if a only 64bit environment
be really needed then IA-64 would have been more successful.
