    v19 v20  
    152152The 64-bit Windows port is probably more mature than the 32-bit Windows port.
    153153It only runs on 64-bit versions of Windows; it's been tested/used some on
    154 XP64 and quite a bit more extensively on 64-bit Vista.  (Don't laugh: as
    155 of this writing, a large percentage of new Windows boxes sold at retail
    156 outlets - like !BestBuy in the US - come with 64-bit versions of Vista
    157 installed.  It's not clear if "a large percentage" is "a majority" yet,
    158 but it's much more common than it was even 6 months ago.)
     154XP64 and quite a bit more extensively on 64-bit Vista and 64-bit Win7,
    159155
    160156The 32-bit port should run on 32-bit versions of XP and Vista.  (For obscure
    161 reasons, the 32-bit port doesn't run on 64-bit OS versions at this point.  We
    162 intend to address that, if only to avoid having to explain that it doesn't
    163 and why it doesn't.)
     157reasons, the 32-bit port didn't run on 64-bit OS versions prior to CCL version 1.7)
