That was no release (in the sense of a product release) of the system,
though, was it? My understanding that the system is still considered
in beta by Microsoft.

AMD64 compiler to my knowledge, nor does the February 2003 (?) platform
SDK incorporate one (which does incorporate an Itanium compiler).
