I do have some documents that are over 300 pages long. They load slowly
on my 32bit WinXP machine. My new one is much faster and has plenty of
memory so that would no doubt make a huge difference. With that said, a
64 bit application runs faster and more efficiently on a 64 bit system
than a 32 bit application does. I was just wondering why ProTeXt was not
ported to that architecture. I am assuming it wasn't because I cannot
find a 64bit download for it.
