32 or 64 bit, that’s the question…

With the announcement of Windows 7 more and more systems will be delivered with the 64-bit edition.

The most important advantage of 64 bit versus 32 bit is that you can use more than 3.5 GB in your system. If your computer at the moment is equipped with 4 GB you can only use 3.5 GB for your system and applications. With 64 bit versions either Vista or Windows 7 you can use above 4GB.

Your processor has to have 64-bit capabilities.

I have tested several versions especially with the focus on speed. Windows Vista and Windows 7 were tested in 32 and 64 bit on an AMD Turion64 X2.

My focus was looking for difference between the feeling of speed and working speed.

Editting a Full HD 1080p recording with adding 3 effect in Adobe Premire Elements 7 (32 bit version).

I did a surprising conclusion.

I had expected that Vista 64 would give a power boost, but this wasn’t true. I had Windows 7 32bit installed. The editting went without delays. The system was able to monitor the recording without sound stuttering.

Weird was this problem is known due to slow harddrives. The harddrive cannot cope with the stream. On the desktop computer I don’t have this problem due to faster harddrives, on the notebook I have. The weird part is that I was able to edit easier and faster on Windows 7 32bit than on the fast desktop pc.

I would have expected Vista 64 should perform the same or better than Windows 7 in 32bit… End conclusion is that Windows 7 is really faster with the same hardware even on 32 and 64 bit… On this ‘old’ notebook I have a preference for the 32 bit version because I can’t upgrade to more than 4GB. Also some drivers and programs cannot deal well with 64 bit yet. But it is really well compared to Vista 64.

I’m sure the next computer will be 100% certainly Windows 7, 64 bit edition…

In 2008 Windows had less found exploits

In 2008 Windows operating systems less exploit/leaks were found than in other systems as Linux and Mac OS X.

Before I have indicated that it’s not so bad with the insecurity of Windows than some would like to believe us.  It appears that exploits in Linux or Mac OS X are more awful or just awful. 

Now X-Force did a research and came to the following conclusion: 

Apple Mac OS X had more than 14% of the leaks.  Linux had more than 10% of the leaks. 

Amusingly is also that Windows XP (5,5%) comes on the 5th spot and unsafer is than Windows Vista (5,1%).  I did not expected otherwise because Microsoft do well know what they should do.  You can read the original article on:  http://www.zdnet.nl/news.cfm?id=97972&mxp=221

You can see it’s not easy to claim a safe operating system because a lot of time the least secure are saying Windows is unsecure.

It is commonly known exploits are normal in operating systems. 

You have to install more patches under Linux or Mac OS X than by Windows operating system. This saves again money for maintenance for businesses which use Windows as operating system, yet to be silent about  the safety risk.
