hi, i decided to downgrade from vista 64bit ultimate to xp....i ve got a brand new pc with 64 bit processor, GF 8800GT and etc...is there any point to put an XP64bit PRO or ULTIMATE edition instead of an 32bit edition? is there a big advantage between the 32 and 64bit edition??? and is the Media Center included in the XP and if yes so in which version...if not is it possible to download it and then just add it to the XP....thanks

don't bother with XP64 in any form as there is very little software support or drivers for this.
stick with the 32 version.

I am running it on my PC at the moment, and have had few problems. I can't run Sidekick 99 - my old address database, but most things are OK. Had to download a few Vista drivers for my Samsung SCX-4100 printer scanner copier.

Not into heavy gaming, so can't advise, but you may have problems there.

Have got a laptop with Vista on that I am thinking of putting XP on it after playing around with it for 6 months. Find Vista very slow, and have disabled most of the annoying flashy gimmicks, to help speed things up.
