Not much point to argue with you, but:
1. Mike said 64-bit build is needed to work with 64-bit java.
That's the only real argument. Performance may improve ever so
slightly, or it might stay the same, or I've even seen cases when
programs run slower in 64-bit mode due to higher memory
consumption. In either case judging by my own experience it's not
a big deal.

3. You're confused between multi-threading and multi-processing.
If you want to do multi-processing - that would require some kind
of communications between processes. And worst of all - I don't
see why NVDA would need multiple processes and how it would
benefit from it.
In any case, trying to convince people on the Internet is a really
stupid idea, so I'll probably stop here.

I was not trying to spread panic. Your asertions about 64 bit
and SSE2 as well as multithreading are false. NVDA devs
accknowledge that they do not know for sure that switching to
pure 64 bit won't improve performance, that is why they list it
as a possible project that can be undertaken in google summer of
code.Also, nvda does not use multithreading, in that all
functions of nvda run in a single process, with the exception of
the helper. Moreover, when joseph wrote a version of nvda with
SSE2, people reported that it had a massive performance

You are one of those people who're trying to spread the panic,
As for 64 bit, this is not the first time on this mailing list
that you're complaining about. The truth is that there is no
need to switch to 64-bit as it is not likely to increase
performance or support of other software. So please stop using
64-bit support as the reason for imminent decline of NVDA.
NVDA devs are not going to work on this just because you want
In another thread on this mailing list you also mentioned that
NVDA should use SSE and multithreading. That's another
ridiculous statement of yours. SSE is for floating point
computations and therefore it's not applicable to NVDA.
Multithreading is already being used in NVDA.
So, stop complaining. and stop spreading panic.

I will comment on this. While NVDA isn't dieing,
development has certainly slowed down considerably since
Jamy left the project. NVDA is falling behind jaws in
adopting some newer introduced technologies, e.g, 64 bit,
UIA support for office, which jaws has implemented
completely for all office apps etc. Therefore the concern
which was also expressed on the dev list is certainly

This is just one issue showing that
you cannot believe everything you hear.
Especially on computer groups and
lists, there is a lot of fake roomers!
Fake news is getting very dangerous
in every area of our lives!
We must research what we hear, and
consider the source!

Thank You Joseph Lee, for Your
I was also worried. There was also
some alarmed message between people,

was unnecessary alarm.
