im going to have to agree with that....i run xp 64 on my computer and never had a problem...then i installed it on computers that i built for friends...and good lord....ended up going back and putting 32 on all the machines....
x64 is awesome if you know what you're doing....but if you dont it'll cause headaches when trying to install stupid software that noobs use
as for vista...meh....i dont mind it...a little irritating with all the "do you want to allow..." ****, but once you disable that its fine....i have vista, x64, x32 and openSUSE on my main computer....so i run whatever i'm in the mood for
i think overall XP 32 is still the best OS....but once vista has been around for a couple more years it will be better....anyone remember how much XP sucked during it's infancy?
