But saying now that amd64 won't be gaining ground, just like what
happened to ia64, means quite the same thing as "I haven't been around
for the last year, or have been playing sand-in-head". I don't know what
gave you the idea that amd64 isn't popular, but it is. To give you an
idea, there's Mobila amd64 already[0]. Care to explain why you think it
won't be popular?
