I think so, yeah...just like how you can run old 16-bit applications in Windows XP now...I'm almost positive XP-64 will be backwards-compatible

Thing is, I heard of many people having all this incompatibility problems in current XP64 RC2 and stuff, so I'm hoping the Final is gonna be like XP now only you will be able to run 64bit applications as well as 32 at the same time.

Plus, hopefully some games will take advantage of the new OS and release 64bit versions. I remember HL2 was supposed to be 64 supported. But yeah, is the OS also going to work faster, like browse files faster or load faster?
