64bit Office 2010 Windows 7
 
What's the word with not supporting the latest speed(64 bit systems)? Are we moving forward or not? I've enjoyed the Blackberry so far, but I won't be able to stay if they don't get with the program. It's a good thing I still own a 32 bit system, or I'd be gone already. Anyone else ready to move to a faster, better PC system, and feel held back by Blackberry?

there was a beta release on the DTM that was able to support that, if you look through the "Beta you than me" section of the forums you may be able to find it in there.

And don't integrate well at all with existing 32 bit apps.

I'm going to clear a bit of confusion here.

Yes, there's an issue of the BB software not integrating with Outlook 64-bit. Most likely because the Desktop Software is only a 32-bit program at this time.

One thing about the 32/64-bit stuff is that your computer can have the capability of running 64-bit code, but is still 100% capable of running 32-bit.

Windows 7 comes in both a 64-bit and 32-bit version, as well as Office 2010.

You can technically run Windows 7 64-bit and Office 2010 32-bit. This won't have any performance degradation or anything. Most users of 64-bit Windows would find that 90% of their programs are still only running in a 32-bit mode.

The biggest advantage to 64-bit computing is memory addressing space. Programs (and the OS) can utilise more memory which can add a performance increase.

The biggest advantage of 64-bit is mainly for two (maybe 3) applications.

Excel, Outlook and maybe Access.

The whole point of 64-bit Office was actually for Excel, which now allows you to have a spreadsheet over 2GB in file size. You can literally go down over 50,000 Rows and across to like ZZZZ Columns.

Outlook and Access would also have an advantage if they needed to work with large data sets. I'm talking 2GB+ files though.

Overall there is NO advantage for the typical Office user to get the 64-bit version. It doesn't hurt, but there is very little advantage. As experienced, the disadvantage is that DM doesn't (didn't) quite yet support Outlook 64-bit.

RIM just released DM 601, I wonder if that will have 64bit support in it?

I keep getting a pop up message to upgrade to it when I launch my DM.
