I have to take issue with some of your article (good though it was):

Linux was 64-bit enabled before the Hammer processors (Athlon 64 and Opteron) were ever released.

Itanium died a death because of Intel messing up the design, not because of Microsoft. Having an expensive 64-bit processor producing results slower than a less expensive 32-bit processor is bad. Pity Intel didn't think that.

Other than that, I thought the article was good. I would have included load times and system responsiveness times (if available) rather than the standard benchies.

I enjoyed the article immensly. And it did give me a lot to think about before upgrading (if i ever do) to vista. Since i am already Duo cpu running it helped determine if i will be running 32bit or the 64 bit version with the addition of at least 2 more gigs of ram (running 2 gigs now).
