Do you think latest hardware will be compatible with 32 bit simple PCI after 2010 ?

or it will be thrown out.

Well, you can always buy old hardware in 2010, just like you can still buy ISA and such cards now. I believe itll be surpassed by something else, like maybe 64-bit PCI, but like 16-bit PCI is to 32-bit PCI, it'll never really die out, hell, i still use a 16-bit ethernet card for my (really) old IBM Thinkpad.

as far as i know, 64 BIT PCI slots can be made compatible, so you can plug now in a 32 BIT Sound card in a 64 BIT PCI slot right now.

i was wondering if they prefer to skip the compatibility, and/or stop using PCI - this whould take more time i guess.
