people have had to worry about the consequences of moving
software to 64-bit architectures from 32-bits; of course some
people have been working on this since at least the early
have any ideas about:
sort of architectures that will be needed to support nanotech;
will 32-bit, 64-bit, 128-bit or whatever be required? Will
16-bits be enough?
sort of architectures will nanotech reasonably make available
to us, 64-bit, 256-bit, whatever? Presumably so as to be able
to access massive storage?
I am ignoring
here that massive parallelism and dynamic networking will
almost certainly be involved, and looking at the basic computing
