If you've got the following capable hardware and a need for "uber-powered" computing, you're in luck. RC1 of the Windows XP Professional x64 Edition is yours for the asking. Here's what you will need per Microsoft's site:
Supported processors include:
AMD Athlon 64 processors
AMD Opteron processors
Intel Xeon processors including Intel EM64T
Intel Pentium 4 processors including Intel EM64T
1.5GB available hard disk space
Super VGA (800x600) or higher graphics card
CD-ROM or DVD drive
Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
I don't have any of these specs in house just yet, so I'll let you do the 534MB download and tell me how it works! The file is in ISO format and must be burned to CD.
C'mon, I just know that someone wants to click the post title, grab a free RC1 version and report back in! As a sidenote, the order site was a little flaky but once you add the free download to your cart, you can click the Cart button to get "past the flaky-ness".
Thanks to FlexBeta for the information.
