  1. Microsoft will release a 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP (news - web sites) for Advanced Micro Devices' forthcoming Opteron and Athlon64 processors, Microsoft announced Wednesday.

    Microsoft announced support for AMD processors last year, but the omission of support for AMD in the release-to-manufacture version of Windows Server 2003 unveiled last week led observers to wonder if Microsoft would follow through on its plans.
    Beta releases of the operating systems are expected in the middle of 2003, Microsoft said in a press release.
