I will consider that when I purchase my 64 bit processor, but I have read that the x64 OS actually slows down many applications.

I'm really just looking forward to 64 bit gaming, which I assume next generation games such as Half Life 3 etc. will run on, or I at least hope so. Apparently, 64 bit computing will not so much increase overall speed, but other things such as graphics peformance, something which I am excited about.

I think I may order a CD tonight though.

will all apps (like office, photoshop, etc) still be able to run on xp64? or will each company have to make another version to run on a 64bit os?

I'm sure they will make it baskwards compatable with 32-bit applications. They did the same when they switched from 16-bit to 32-bit, in the 9x series yes? It can run BOTH 16 and 32. So Longhorn will more than likely do the same.
