    Lightbulb 64 Bit OS

    An only 64 bit system? Will this make it hard to run Bootcamp with 32 bit systems and does it mark the end of hacked versions of Mac OS X because 64 bit systems are not that popular compared to 32 bit systems?

    It is not a 64-bit only system.

    Snow Leopard runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit Intel Macs.
    As far as 64-bit not being as popular compared to 32-bit systems, most computers sold in the past few years have had full 64-bit support, however have simply been running a 32-bit operating system.

    The reason why 64-bit is unpopular is because of the fact that many hardware manufacturers are simply not bothering to write updated drivers that allow you to use their products with a 64-bit operating system.

    Question

    I see...

    On the snow leopard page (i just searched google 'snow leopard') it says 16TB of memory!!!

    Bit much isn't it? Who would actually use all of that?

    You know... Once up on a time there was a man called Bill Gates who said 640kb is more memory than anyone will ever need.
