BTW: When will there be a x64 version of coLinux? Anything in the pipeline or the brains of the developers?

Actually I think you'll find that for the most part this is actually a
Windows limitation, see:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283037

Windows the operating system will limit the amount of memory that it
can address even if the system can support more underneath. So whilst
it might be an issue with the hardware, these days what is more than
likely the case is that its an issue with Windows. Of course, it
doesn't help that both Windows and the x86 instruction set are almost
the worst performing products in the market (e.g. compared to say
Linux and PPC respectively) so you're really in a doomed position to
begin with anyway.
