Mac OS X is intrinsically 64 bits.
Ok, but when Apple released firsts Intel based Mac not all CPUs
were EM64T capable (please correct me if this is wrong)
Right. The first generation of at least the Mac Mini has only
IntelCore processors which are 32bit only which from time to time
begins to harm me when newer versions become 64bit only.
is, in my opinion, a lost opportunity/chance/occasion for Apple.
So Intel Mac OSX for those hardware platforms were 32 bit only.
Not quite right. Mac OS X is hast sort of two kinds of universal
The first kind are the ones for ppc/x86 which can run on both chip
The second kind are the ones that contain the 32bit and 64bit code.
And now you can combine as you like it. At least the last
generation G5 PPC processors used are 64bit.
To allow LO to be run on as much apple hardware that is still used
and runs with 10.4 we should build binaries that contain both 32bit
and 64 bit for both PPC and x86.
This is because I ask for: I don't know if PPC(32)/PPC64 yielded,
in the past, a MacOS X 32/64 for PPC* platforms. Do you?
It was once asked and discussed but by that time there was no need
seen to build a 64bit OOo and we couldn't waist developer time to
just do it because it can be done while the native version was in
heavy development and priority one.
I'm not a MacOS X user (I am an OpenSuSE x86-64 one), but I hope
this builds are released if they are meaningful as well as I hope
NeoOffice groups and efforts converge (!) in LibreOffice in the
same way Go-OO already is.
NeoOffice has chosen the GPL license so they need to re-license
The latter may reasults in a NeoOffice updater releases (now
still on an old 3.1.2!), but is only an easy first advantage.
This way is possible they can use LO 3.2.0 or 3.3.0 code.
(IA64 one may not interest to people)
Does a version of Windows currently ship for that chip?
May be Windows server 2008/2008-R2?
Afaik there was a Windows XP version for this chip, later on only
the server versions of windows supported itanium and server 2008-R2
will be the last windows to run on Itanium
