128bit version is too early. It should be 5 years from now or so.

Wider instructions don't necessarily mean faster performance. Slower depending on what you're doing. Clickbait article.

As long as we dont have 128 bit processors for the general costumer is pretty useless.

As I recall that article was debunked with what they were really working on being a 128-bit filesystem, most likely ReFS. Before you ask, they already exist. and have for most of the decade in the form of ZFS on Solaris.

The other place a 128-bit OS would make sense is on routers and switches dealing with IPv6.

What would a 128 bit OS even be like?
I don't need your gamefaqs! I'll make my own gamefaqs! With blackjack! And hookers! In fact, forget the gamefaqs!

Hell, most apps are still 32-bit, and 64-bit CPUs have been in the mainstream for a decade now!
