Re: What exactly is Longhorn bringing to the table?
heres the proof, someone has defined it, thanx to my good friends at webopedia this is the definition of bit, when referring to it as 32-bit etc:
"Computers are sometimes classified by the number of bits they can process at one time or by the number of bits they use to represent addresses. These two values are not always the same, which leads to confusion. For example, classifying a computer as a 32-bit machine might mean that its data registers are 32 bits wide or that it uses 32 bits to identify each address in memory. Whereas larger registers make a computer faster, using more bits for addresses enables a machine to support larger programs. "
So now i know!
