Windows 64-bit ?

  [DELETED] 09:17 03 Jan 2006

I was just wondering whether I should get Windows 64-bit.
Is it worth it? Should I download the trial version, or wait until the real version?
Is the real version out yet?

I'd not bother with it becuase a lot of peripherals don't have 64bit drivers available as yet.

Vista is due later this year.....

But the real version of 64bit XP is available.

Do you have any 64bit software and 64bit drivers for your hardware yet? I doubt you do.

Wait till next version of windows

And don't try the trial. You'll need new drivers and you'll mess up your existing system

You'll find little or no advantage with existing software anyway
