64-bit Windows Vista

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Help and Support' started by Unregistered, Dec 2, 2006.

  1. With new chips from Intel and AMD supporting 64-bit extensions, would it make more sense to install the 64-bit version of Windows Vista? Why aren't more people using 64-bit Windows XP? What are the pros and cons?

    There is some software that's not supported in 64-bit, but hopefully this problem will go away. Webroot Spy Sweeper comes to mind. (A great program, just not compatible with 64-bit)
  3. Pros: ?
    Cons: poor driver support, most applications run slower in 64-bit than 32.
