As dor upgrading from 32bit, im pretty sure it would need a full reinstall.
lol, really? Glad someone out there had good luck with 64 bit Vista. We had to roll the entire district's system back to XP Pro cause we couldn't get a single thing done. Well, I lied about that. IE worked, we could get on the web... but, ya know, nothing software wise worked. Haaa.

64 bit architecture is alot better, more stable, etc. I dont think the problems with vista whether or not its 32 or 64, its just vista. My personal experience has been no better tha xp, but no worse really. Either way 64bit is the way of the future.

dont forget for a small added partition to your hard drive you can always Dual Boot a 32 and 64bit version of windows.

The only reason I don't have Vista is because I like to stream off my sound card as well as record off it (lectures, music, etc) ; ) While Vista no longer supports that (in order to combat piracy apparently).

At the same time though with a nice sound card I could do all those things. From what I m hearing about SP1 it seems Vista is no longer hording ram. So if things continue to improve I might just get a cheap sound card and go Vista 64bit.
