Haven't been able to install FreeBSD yet as my SCSI cable connectors 
have lots of bent pins.  So just for kicks last night I tried to install 
some 32 bit Windows applications on XP-64.   Absolutely none would 
install.  It appears that anything that requires a driver is 
uninstallable.  Someone perhaps has a good expanation for this.  I'm 
going to try Python later.  It has always installed on anything.

But my recommendation to Bill Gates is  this:  make your first port to 
64 bits Solataire.
