    Wikipedia also has a quite comprehensive article.

    Thanks for the post, Ron.

    Ron, thank you for that great info! Although I knew 64bit is more resistant to rootkits/malware, I had no idea the gap between it and 32bit was so vast.

    Careful - There are those who would disagree with you on this point!

    LOL! you are right, but I'm just reacting to the stats provided, as opposed to declaring it a fact ;) It will be most interesting to see over time when 64bit is far more widespread whether the stats reflect a 64bit resilience against rootkits and malware.
