Microsoft made available an OS to the general public (2003 Pro, I 
think) for x86_64 at *least* 6 months ago, maybe more, and MSDN members 
have access to other OS builds as well (at least 2003 server).  You 
have at least 2 compiler options, namely MSVC++ and GCC.  ICL does not 
(yet) support x64_64.
