How to upgrade your Windows (32 bit) to Windows (64 bit) for free?

Now that Microsoft has officially released the 64bit of Windows, what is more interesting is you can upgrade your 32 bit OS to 64 bit for free (you need to order before July 31st) – yep its true – for free – nada, zilch, nothing. But, heh heh yes, there is no free lunch in life. To upgrade you give up the rights to your 32 bit OS and must own a 64 bit CPU (e.g. my media center has a AMD 64 Athalon). More importantly you might not have drivers for all the hardware – is this important? Yep, it is very important actually because the 64 bit version will *not* support 32-bit device drivers and will not run any 16-bit applications.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
