    Hmmm ... In my opinion, you are going to be flamed a lot ...

    - With a 64 bit O/S like linux/Alpha you can virtually map all the
    silicium of the universe.
    - Linux/Alpha has a 64 bit time_t that allows to not reboot for about 30
    times the elapsed time from the BIG BANG.

    The above text is a joke. Obviously, I know advantages of 64 bit
    architecture and O/S (es).

    A journalist have to write papers. It is his job. Probably he did not
    have informations about Linux and NetBSD or is a bad journalist.
    But you, who subscribed to linux lists, receive informations.

    You're unforgivable!!!
