> Roland Andersson <rolandersson@gmail.com> asked some followup questions
> about running Stata for 64-bit Windows:
>> Is there no benefit at all of using 32-bit Stata on 64-bit windows?
>> Will I have access to the same amount of memory? Or will it be less?
>> Speed?

> There is no performance or memory reason to run 32-bit Stata on

>> Does this mean that I can obtain the 64-bit version with no additional cost?
