removal of legacy code

Idea created by dcoombe on Jul 27, 2011
    There appears to be code left over since the days of ArcInfo Workstation etc being ported to windows. Today's hardware and software environments appear to be not truly utilised by ESRI products.

    I would like to see:
    • true native 64 bit    
      • including hyperthreading
      • multi core processing
      • removal of hard coded limitations
    • graphics card processing e.g. cuda processing
    • incorporation of today's image formats e.g. being able to handle alpha transperency
    • removal of hard coded limitations
