Some interesting and affordable 64 bit platforms are showing up giving
us a lot more real and virtual memory space to run Erlang in. I just
tried building and running R9C estone on a AMD Opteron 1.4 GHz
processor and FreeBSD. Opteron is a 64 bit processor with a very fast
memory system. I built Erlang using gcc 3.2.2.

I will get access to a PowerMac G5 soon. The IBM PowerPC G5 also a 64
bit processor and probably a very fast processor running Erlang as well,
