Red Hat has come out with a new update to its Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS, which brings in better support for 64-bit architectures. Users can now run RHEL on Opteron and Xeon servers with up to 64 CPUs. A small club of the loyalists of Intelís Itanium processor already had the facility to run RHEL on their boxes.

The update also includes a preview package for running RHEL on up to 256 Itanium chips and up to 128 Power chips. These figures apply to logical CPUs as well, so core counts will affect the total number of chips supported. The update also includes support for Intel's upcoming dual-core version of the Itanium processor.

Linux and MS are now both pushing 64bit, although the change to it has been slow it will become a must! :)
