    Last night I got it installed and have started blogging about it for Ryan over at extended64.com

    http://www.extended64.com/blogs/electronic_punk/default.aspx

    Will try and keep it updated as I discover stuff and will most likely start mirroring it over here anyway. Hoping I can use a few contacts I have to find out information on 64bit migration. Fun fun fun.

    Cool, CommunityServer is the same CMS they've started using on the MSDN blogs too. They have some really nice, clean layouts. :)

    Woo! And there's an RSS feed. Subscribed! \o/

    Yup, been out drinking but will try and write down the applications I have been testing today.

    Mailwasher has a few issues, Perfectdisk won't work at all.
    Testing continues!

    everything should work if the authors add a value to their code...pretty simple for them to do, I'm VERY surprised perfect disc hasn't done it.

    I think they're probably worried about offering the switch with such a sensitive product as defragmentation without specifically writing the app for the platform

    could ask if they have a beta, and since it's an os that I'm just experimenting with, I won't mind running a beta defrag, though it's normally pretty dangerous to beta a defrag

    I was trying 64bit out the other day, and I noticed that HDtach didn't work very well. Maybe MS changed the IDE/SATA drivers. That would mean anything that had to do with hd read/write might not work correctly. This is of course just my BS, I dont know if its true, they could just not work :D

    Sorry no testing last night. Unless testing the effect of alcohol on 64bit os users counts.
