Default Windows XP 64 bit edition

Any support for games in this edition? Is it worth putting it on my new Conroe build opposed to XP Pro? If there are drivers or emu's that I have to use just to access some older 32 bit ware than it is not worth it to me. Just need some input on this please.

i used to run it but it wouldn't update anymore?


it's a 64bit capable o/s, which means it can run 64bit apps but as well, it has backward capability (just like 64bit processors)

but, you need a 64bit processor obviestly (don't know what you have)

i don't know how the driver support is now...i know when i ran it, it pretty much sucked.
