AMD64 Java requires linux?
I have a Toshiba laptop with an AMD64 processer. I have Vista Home loaded on it right now. I wish to
run a CPU intensive program on it that does pure mathematical calcualtions and can, and has, run for over two days straight. I believe it will speed up somewhat with a 64 bit application.
My question is: Can I run 64 bit java under VISTA (a 32 bit OS) or do I have to, as I suspect, use a Linux flavor?
And if so, what Linux (downloadable) system should I use? I have managed to get openSUSE, Ubuntu, and Debian
(both stable and testing) up and running on the little guy.
I appreciate any help you can give me on the subject. Thanks in advance. :cool:
