- May 30, 2006You don't need 64 bit Windows to take advantage of 64 bit 'technology' - you
only need it for 64 bit software programs, which are quite rare. Also the 64
bit drivers needed for 64 bit Windows can be hard to find.
Makes alot more sense to me to stick with regular Win XP Pro, and upgrade to
Vista sometime after the first SP release. The current 64 bit Windows is a
dead end road, IMO.

Furthermore, you will need to contact each hardware manufacture whose
product you plan to purchase to find out if they have existing drivers for
64 bit technology. Remember the system components work in synergy; it is the
sum of the parts working together that make the system. If your operating
system is 32 bit, you will never take advantage of 64 bit software.
Likewise, if your op system is 64 bits and all your software drivers are 32
bit, do you see the problem?
