Virtualbox uses the AMD64 label as well. Who needs standards, right?

It's a clarity point. There are two 64-bit technologies-- IA64 which really never took off and mostly got used in high end servers, and AMD64 which did. Microsoft labels there stuff x64 and IA64 because although the original technology was AMD64, Intel also makes chips with that architecture. I'm not sure why Communigate has chosen to name theirs AMD64. Virtually no one else I can think of does that. Most simply say x64 or 64-bit. Strictly speaking, AMD64 is more accurate.

Anyone know why the 64-bit Linux versions are called "x86_64", while the windows 64-bit versions are called "AMD64"?
 
Seems kinda odd to me....

Currently running the AMD_64 version on a dev system with Win7 x64 (Intel CPU)

Am I correct to assume that the AMD_64 version for windows is the one that should be installed on a 64-bit intel system running a 64-bit Windows OS?

I'd just like to confirm before I go pulling any triggers.
