XP Pro. There's some nasty problems in 64-bit XP, mostly in regards
to software issues and driver issues. And in my opinion, the
advantages of Vista are outweighed by the shortcomings of that

for much better info on both Vista and XP and 64-bit.
Another option to consider is a Linux distribution (aka 'distro') and
install on it a virtualization solution such as VMWare workstation.
You can run essentially any other operating system (even Mac, though
with some issues) inside a virtual machine, and I'd wager that you
could run XP Pro 32-bit inside that vm faster than you could run Vista
with Aero directly on the hardware, especially with a distro that has
a small footprint in terms of memor and cpu requirements. In my
opinion Linux offers the best utilization of your machine's 64-bit
dual-core heart. That's a very respectable piece of hardware you
have, by the way. Might as well use it to its fullest extent.
Obviously, you would initially want to make the machine dual-bootable,
or even tri- or quad-bootable if you have sufficient harddrive space.
Do that and you'll literally have the best of all worlds and you can
have the freedom to choose the best solution available to you at the
time you need it.
Go ahead... your machine can take it. ;c)
