AMD64 in 64 bit mode can still run 32 bit software.
With 32-bit OS? No, it can't. With 64-bit OS you can run 32 bit software but your 32-bit shared libraries can not talk with your 64-bit shared libraries - everything must be recompiled or proxy must be used.
ipv6 just chucks ipv4 out the window.
No. If update an OS on the router it can drive IPv4 and IPv6. And yes, for them to interoperate you'll need to recompile everything and/or use some proxies.
See the difference now?
Let me think about it...
1st try. Can you use new address space without core infrastructure update?
2nd try. Can you use new old clients with core infrastructure update?
3rd try. Can the old client talk with the new ones directly?
AMD64: No, you must use proxy.
IPv6: No, you must use proxy.
Hmm... Funny... All the questions have the same answer... So... where is the difference?
