The theme for this week is compatibility, brought to you by the letters W and O, and the number 64.
My favourites so far are:
- x64 (native or enhanced) – patched or compiled for true x64 operation
- WOW64 – runs as a 32 bit process under 64-bit Windows (I know, it almost seems backwards, but the acronym is Win32 on Win64, I think)
- UNWOW64 – doesn’t run under x64, for whatever reason. Aka “broken” or “unworkable”.
1984 was a doubleplusgood book, wasn’t it?
