Windows XP 64 Bit Edition
 
Free trial for 360 days! That is about one year, and for you people out there with 64bit systems, I wanna know how much faster this actually is- http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/6...n/upgrade.mspx

I actually got that demo but I couldn't install it on my comp because the 64-bit OS won't recognize the SATA drivers for my hard drives. I'll wait until microsoft comes out with a definate 64bit OS that you can buy from a place like staples.

I hear that it lowers performance alot.

If they're giving it out free, it probably means it's full of bugs that they want their customers (ie. guinea pigs) to report. If I had a 64-bit, I'd definitely try it, but I don't. On the other hand, if I got a 64-bit system now it would probably be a G5, so I wouldn't be able to try it anyway. Not that I would care so much (mmm....Panther...)

An interesting note...it requires 1.5 gigs...

I am sure the final release will still be full of bugs.
