No, I have no reason aside from pure geek value. I was under the,
probably false, impression that sparc64 executables could move data
around faster. i.e. doubles could be loaded in fewer clock cycles. So
I have 2 questions that maybe you can answer,
1) Is the only advantage to a sparc64 executable access to memory larger
than 2G per process?
2) Assuming yes to question 1, then what is with the hype with 64bit
