The new generation of 64-bit computers is here and R2 is its operating system. This results in the capability to create applications that can run faster and take advantage of more memory than is available to 32-bit applications. We can now build 64-bit applications with managed code and write 64-bit unmanaged code on 64-bit computers, without the limitation of the 4GB memory barrier inherent in 32-bit systems.
