Any plans for 64-bit Toad?


#1

I’ve a shiny new PC that is running Win7 64-bit. Are there plans for a
64-bit Toad in the future?

Deborah,

The development enviroment that Toad is written in has no 64 bit version so
there’s now way we can do it given the current technology. Once it becomes
available, 64bit Toad will be on the list.

I haven’t had time for my morning tea yet (yes, Mark, it’s loose leaf
English Breakfast) so I’m a little confused here – what would be the
advantage of having a 64-bit Toad, other than marketing? Or is there a
Winders AWE-type restriction that would be removed with it?

Just thinking…

As far as I know, the only things that it would give you are

Some users apparently like the idea of having entire gigabyte tables in a grid
popup in toad…not sure why, but that’s what I hear when I press on
64 bit.

The other reason is generally an assumption that they need 64 bit b/c the Server
OS/Client OS/Oracle Client is 64 bit so Toad must be too…

My next work laptop will have 4GB RAM – and XP.

That might just be enough rope for me to fashion a noose…

Of course. I can’t wait for office 2010 so I can get 64-bit excel and load up a
spread sheet with 100 million rows in it. That should be fun.

The memory manufacturers are salivating.

I run out of memory on my shiny Win7 64-bit PC because it seems almost all of my
most used software uses the same 3.5 gigs of RAM.

I admit – I drank the Kool-Aid that a shiny new PC running Win7 would
solve all my PC woes (listened to the voices, err, bosses). Now I think I was on
right track saying all my Win problems would disappear if I wiped my old PC and
installed Ubuntu. My Ubuntu LT top runs like crazy even when I have VMWare guest
running. Can’t remember it giving a “out of memory” with only
4G.

If it wasn’t such a pain to hook into all the Win network servers here I
would have made this shiny new 64-bit PC penquin powered and closed the Window
in all but the guest rooms.
