Lets put it this way. I have a MMO beta client for a beta I'm in. I closed it at 7am on monday. I checked task manager to check firefox 3's memory footprint and noticed that the client was still running at 49% cpu and 500Mb of active ram. I never noticed on vista 64 bit. XP would have been choking when I fired up Deus Ex 2 with that in the background
The only problem I've found is that running 32-bit IE7 on Vista x64 makes Facebook crash my browser. When I run the 64-bit IE7 on Vista x64 it is works fantastically but there isn't a 64-bit version of Flash yet!
i've been using x64 for over 2years now, first with XP and now with Vista and i've had very few problems with programme compatibility. Theres only ever been the odd programme (usualy older ones) that don't work and theres an increasing number of aps which release 64 bit versions. Its all gravy
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
