Renzo Comolli (renzo.comolli@yale.edu) inquired about changing from
the 32-bit version of Stata for Windows to one of the 64-bit versions
of Stata for Windows at some point in the future:

First, Stata 9 for Windows (32-bit) will run on both Itanium
and x86-64 (AMD Opteron, AMD Athlon 64, and Intel EM64T) computers
running 64-bit Windows.  Of course to take full advantage of the
64-bit architecture, including the ability to allocate more than
2 GB of memory to an application, it would be better to run a
native 64-bit version of Stata.

The normal platform change charge is $50 (for something like a change
from Windows to Macintosh), but for a move from 32-bit Windows to
64-bit Windows or a move from 32-bit Linux to 64-bit Linux, the
cost is $25.
