The article focuses on the Microsoft Corp.'s 64-bit Windows edition. It is informed that company chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates last week announced the second beta for Microsoft Corp.'s Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003, a 64-bit operating system for industry-standard x64 processors. Some users, such as David Robert, a systems manager for a global consulting and engineering company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, are hoping that Microsoft will be successful in making a product that is easier to use than Linux. The company expects its customers to start preproduction deployment evaluations of the product with this beta, said Kyril Faenov, Microsoft's director for high-performance computing, adding that the team is not planning a third Windows CCS beta, so a release candidate will be next. Asked what feedback Microsoft had received from the developers who tested Beta 1, Faenov said it became clear just how important it is to provide them with diagnostic tools. To help ISVs rapidly migrate their code, Microsoft showcased about 19 applications, such as a car crash simulation guide and a weather modeling guide, as well as a demonstration of BioTeam Inc.'s Inquiry software.
