    bee: agreed, it's the only sane thing to do, especially when OEM versions are arch specific (if you go that route).

    x64 (AMD64/EM64T) is an extention of the x86 instruction set - complete with new registers and instructions (and culling of some older instructions - still available in 32bit mode though):

    the true inner geek would forgot vista and learn linux dual booting with xp if anything went wrong.
    xp support is extended intill 2012 now i think.
    so its time to forgot vista and learn linux!
    the thing is i would never get a MS Os when it first came out and wait intill at least service pack 1

    Actually Vista is a step in the right direction (mostly), there's still a few teething problems here and there, but it is ready for deployment this time.
