Necessity of a 64bit Windows version? #5
I wasn't part of the original conversation, so please forgive my ignorance, but are there any situations where a 64bit Windows version is required? I understand the need on Linux, since multilib isn't free. But, to my knowledge, there isn't a big difference between 32bit applications and 64bit applications, as long as you don't need the extra resources. I'm willing to support a 64bit version if there is a legitimate requirement for it. If not, then I'd like to reduce the number of build permutations.... Thoughts?
There is a wiki page on the official Qt wiki for building with MinGW-64. It seems to contain a mix of outdated and updated information, but at least is a good starting point for anyone wanting to build Qt for Win64.
