    Hi guys,
    I have an athlon xp 64 bit processor, untill now i've been using the regular windows xp professional.
    I was wondering if i should install the winxp 64 bit (the trial version) or wait untill it is released as a finished product,
    thanx for the input

    Unless your other Windows programs are 64 bit I doubt it will make much difference.I think the trial version is also time limited.The AMD 64's are fast even running 32 bit.In testing 64 bit Linux it's not much faster than 32 bit Linux on an AMD 64 with the software that's available.The Xeon EM64's are selling as single proccessor PC's on dual proccessor motherboards with only one proccessor installed.The prices are coming down and they are getting interesting.
