    I chose the regular just for the much greater driver support. I'm sure X64 will get there soon, since we know how fast Microsoft can move!!!!

    Driver support so 32 bit here also - UNLESS you can find decent drivers for all the hardware you are using or plan to use in the immediate future on that machine.

    64 bit, you likely have common enough hardware there are 64 bit drivers.

    If nobody uses it or bitches to companies about lack of drivers there never will be any.

    44 votes now :p

    I would`ve voted for normal Windows, but only because analysing HJT logs from 64bit Windows is a pain in the rectum ;)

    Regards Howard :)
