Microsoft Opens Up Beta of XP for Athlon 64, Opteron

Mary Jo Foley

In early January, Microsoft broadened the beta test program for its Windows Server 2003 release for AMD Opteron. Now, Microsoft is doing the same with its beta program for its Windows XP for AMD Athlon 64 and Opteron release. Testers can download the beta bits or order them for CD delivery. The final of the so-called “Windows XP 64-Bit Edition for 64-Bit Extended Systems” won’t be shipping until later this year, just like its “Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition for 64-bit Extended Systems” counterpart.
