On Virtualization.info the long awaited and wanted 64 Bit version is already announced.
http://www.virtualization.info/2009/08/release-sym...

"The product is made of two components: the Workspace Corporate Server, which supports Windows Server 2003 32 and 64bit, and the Client Workstation, which only supports Windows XP 64bit.

Worldwide customers will appreciate that Symantec saved the Free for Personal Use edition, which is not timebombed despite you must download it from the Trial Ware section of the website."

Yes they really say that it ONLY runs on 64Bit.
But very good to see that the free for personal use version still is in place.

I think virtulization.info had wrong (mix) information. Yes there is 32 and 64-bit version of the Workspace Corporate (former nSuite).
Workspace Corporate client support 64-bit XP.

Thats not SWV they're talking about but Streaming and Workspace Corporate I believe.

SWV 6.1 MP1 definitely does not have 64-bit support in it, trust me when I say we'd be shouting it from the roof tops

Nope.  We still have 6.2 to release before 6.3 (64-bit support).

If I understand well, we will have the release 6.2 coming soon or already there, but 32-bits only.
And the Beta is starting with 64-bits support, is 6.3 version: If beta there... Normally for June should we have the 6.3 x64 support there ??

Unfortunately I don't even know the release date for 6.2 so I cannot comment further on 6.3.
