The article was saying MS is working with Intel on Windows 9 with the goal of making it the first 128bit OS... and Windows 10 being the first 256bit OS...  I'll see if I can dig up that article again.
I've built servers with up to 256 GB RAM. For the sake of estimates, let's say 1 TB RAM is about tops right now. That's 2^40. If we extrapolate with Moore's law, we'll max out 64-bits (2^64) in about 36 years. (Realistically it's going to be a lot longer than that) There's no way MS is going to support Win9 40 years from now. There's no 128-bit hardware in the works, so there's no point in designing 128-bit software for the foreseeable future.

256-bit computing will likely never happen.

Just remember Bill Gates famous quote... "640K ought to be enough for anybody"... and today we're going around with a minimum of at least 1GB in most newer computers, and data centers with nearly petabytes of RAM in total. Technology advances fast when it needs to... so 128-bit could come up any time soon. Although 64-bit still isn't fully adopted in every computer. So it'll be a long time before 128-bit ever gets wide scale adoption.

Most likely Microsoft is simply hedging their bets with the nascent crypto-currency technology.

And there is this recurring rumor of a company wanting to buy 90% of all mined Litecoins for research and development.

Well... I can dream can't I ?      Smiley
