Well, well... Does it means that if one have scientific computations needing the extended type available 
on an Intel based processor with time constraints forbiding software emulation, one have to rest under a 
32 bits version of windows ? Hoping/praying that 64 bits Intel based linuxes running fpc software will 
never experience such a monumental regression of Windows - what a nightmare ! Is Freddy Krueger so near us ?

Cheers, Ched'
