NAVIGATION - SEARCH to use SQL Server 2005 x64 Edition and ASP.NET 2.0 x64!

I just got an email alert today, My favorite Microsoft related news site,, will be launching a redesign of their site along with a new server to host it. This is one of the first large sites that I've heard of switching to ASP.NET 2.0 and SQL Server 2005. I can't wait to see the new site.

Read the email alert below:

Hey everyone!  This is a short announcement about , the no.1 Microsoft news source on the net. will soon run on a brand new 64-bit server!  The AMD64 Dual Core processor will run Windows 2003 Server x64 Edition, IIS6 x64, SQL Server 2005 x64 Edition, and ASP.NET 2.0 x64.  Thanks to the hard work of Ryan Hoffman,'s .NET developer, I hope the new site goes live by the end of the week.
