    I've been looking for some articles that can say if using the 64 bit of windows xp pro is better than the 32 bit.

    It seems most places say that its more a pain than a pleasure and they reccomend you duel booting a 32 bit with a 64 bit Windows XP Pro.


    I also am not using any 64 bit enable applications at the moment. I would like to use Adobe Premiere Pro 2, but I can't seem to find out if it is 32 bit or both 32 and 64 bit.


    So does anyone reccomend using XP Pro 64 bit? It is based on 2003 server 64 bit, and it "claims" more reliability.

    Or, for another question, what OS are you using with a 64 bit capable processor?

    (And I'm not just yet going to get that Vista 64 bit thats out)

    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    if you already did some research about winxp pro 64 bit, you already knew the advantage as well as disadvange of it. If you are not a professional user, i dont recommand you use it as the main window. You can keep dual boot as you said above for testing or just playing that much better.

    Window 64 bit supports almost 32 bit software, so even Adobe Premiere Pro 2 is 32 or 64 bit, doesn't matter at all. I'am using xp 64 bit with 32 bit applications, it works so smooth for me.

    For comp with 64 bit capability, Vista of course!

    just wanted to add thing , some application doesn't work on 64Bit even though u can install it without any problem but u cant really run it after install

    so if u gonna use windows 64 Bit u might take this in ur mind , so the best solution is dual boot

    I ran 64-bit Pro exclusively for a few months and finally went back to standard ole 32 bit.
    Too much trouble having to pay attention/search for the correct drivers and some apps just refused to run, no matter what.
    Absent a compelling reason to use it, I wouldn't bother.

    Yeah, I agree; installing 64 bit XP will most like prove frustrating.

    I'll just have to wait out the software industry to start making more 64 bit apps available

    The only thing comparable is some software like Ulead's VideoStudio 10 is optimizing for duel core 2, but I guess they'd have to re-write from scratch to support 64 bit.

    I've tried the 64 bit XP but found too many incompatible programs and becomes too much of a pain to make all my stuff work. I also don't see any performance benefits.

    If you're looking for some adventure then I recommend you look into Windows Vista.
