64-bit Windows XP Delayed To H1 2005

Microsoft has delayed an update to its Windows Server software as well as the first version of Windows to support 64-bit x86 chips. Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2003 for 64-bit Extended Systems and Windows XP 64-bit Edition for 64-bit Extended Systems will all be pushed back until the first half of next year. The move is a blow to AMD, which has had its 64-bit desktop and server chips on the market for some time and has been waiting for a version of Windows that can take advantage of their capabilities. Intel will have chips that support the 64-bit extensions to the existing Pentium architecture, known as x86. Microsoft’s announcement marks the latest in a series of delays for the 64-bit version of Windows XP.
