Its sucks that 2003 Server 64bit enterprise doesnt work with the opteron yet. Im in the process of building a wicked server and I wanted to go dual opterons but I found out this the public released version is Itanium only.

Hmmm... Until the bugs are shaken loose and the 64bit programs and OS come around, the dual MP platform remains quite viable...

shant,

Would be nice, however probably not until they move to 90nm.
