Am I the only one very scared at reading this phrase from him?Quote:
64-bit architectures were first invented for super computers back in the 1970s. The architecture then grew in popularity for networking and servers, and then eventually for home computers and gaming consoles
It sounds like 64 bit processors were at people's homes by the time The Mamas and the Papas were still on the road... Or is it that his phrase ends up forty years later that it starts?
Alright, I also red sometime ago an IT expert saying the Commodore 64 was the first 64 bit computer.
