I didn't really see any benchmarks supporting that fact, let alone for windows, which is usually less of an interest for the apache httpd developers. > so using a 32 bit version once one switches to VC9 builds, so maintaining > everything 64bit VC9 just seems sensible. Exactly the same as it is on Linux > anyway. yeah, if you are using php as an apache module, but if you use for example fastcgi, you can run 32bit php with 64bit apache or vice versa. -- Ferenc Kovács @Tyr43l - http://tyrael.hu
