Fun with bits. 64bits that is...

Danny and I are currently visiting Microsoft for a 64bit OS Dev lab. In fact I'm posting this entry from within the lab itself. We're here doing relative performance comparisons with native 64bit and .NET 64bit. This is just us keeping our finger on the pulse of upcoming technologies. One thing that was loud and clear, was that MS is clearly pushing developers to use .NET as their migration story into the 64bit OS space. Of course for the low-level/device-driver crowd, native codegen is still important, however for application developers and their associated tools, .NET is the wave of the future.

What do you think?
