First Impressions of WinXP64

I've got most of it up and running. Its pretty quick once I got all the 64bit versions of drivers I needed ( bus, sound, video ). The bootup time is pretty quick, but it does not feel much different then that of a fresh XP32 installation. I'll have to give this much more time to see all the quirks of the system, but for a free os download from MS, its pretty good.

IE 64 is freaking fast.

I switched back to 32bit. 32 bit applications are slower on it than on 32, and I didn't want to have to worry about expiring license once my computer was all setup.

Here's some earlier discussion about it:
