A question to ask at Perspectives

I agree, I was very surprised when it didn't even install.

We would like to second this ? being asked -- since, Solidworks 2006
recommends going to 64 bit hardware, and 64 bit windows when available, and
therefore, the most likely next systems purchased that need to access
Solidworks would have the 64 bit hardware or at a minimum, be upgradeable to
it. Makes it difficult to have the system used across platforms, especially
among engineers, without that technology level being supported.

I was spending some time today looking through the net for motherboards. One
of the things I noticed was that 32 bit motherboards are starting to
disappear, and 64 bit motherboards are more prevalent. With this onset of
64 bit the IT departments of the world are facing a fairly large issue of
change over. I have yet to see discussion (or not much anyway) when we
start having mixed networks of 64 and 32 bit systems. I can visualize a
scenario where you have full 64 bit workstations and NT servers. Depending
on where you are in your hardware cycle you could be faced with a pretty big
impact to your budget.
You won't be able to reuse the operating system of a DOA system,
or the programs installed, so when your replacement cycle starts, (like mine
has) you might have to make some tough decisions. Could someone raise the
question with Epicor:
Where are they regarding 64 bit systems?
What about users that have decided not to go with the latest and greatest
version of Vantage?
Are they "SOL" and forced to by "leftovers" off of EBAY?

I don't think this was ever established. There were "rumors" of dates (Tuesday 5:30) and there was mention that Jeff Glaze (EUG Vantage rep) was going to find a room. I don't think both components of time and place ever came together.

Personally I think we could grab just about any empty session room on Monday after the last session and do like last year....grab a wine, beer or soda pop at the Wine & Cheese reception and meet. Depending on where the reception is held (traditionally Hall of Solutions) then if all else is the same as last year the Otho room is nearby on the same floor. We aren't really using the room for more than the chairs and quieter than the Hall so I don't think anyone would mind. Like last year....mainly just to meet and put faces to names and voices to written messages.

Barring any already established plan any better ideas?
