Well, which one? This is strictly primary O.S. :D

I run Vista on my laptop, but my primary O.S. is XP64

I run xp 32bit as I see no reason for 64bit at this point in time. ;)

Hmmm no options for dual boot? I am on dual boot with Windows Vista RC2 32 bit and Windows XP SP2 32 bit, I am using Vista as primary OS all the time on my desktop PC and Windows XP SP2 on my laptop, it will be upgrade to Windows Vista when it hit RTM. :D

I am running Windows XP SP2 32-bit as my primary and Vista RC2 32-bit as my secondary. I will continue to run XP until Vista has more mature drivers and is truly ready to start playing.

Running Vista 32-bit, loving it so far :) . Even got my old HP-printer working on it. Now if only Creative could make a stable audigy driver...

XP32 as my primary OS, Vista64 as secondary boot.

I'm going Vista64 once it goes retail, I ran XP64 for awhile and really liked it, Vista64 RC2 is great I think, Vista64!!!

When Vista comes out I'm going straight to x86-64.

PS: It's x86 not x32 :p, and it's x86-64 not x64 :p.

The architecture is called x86 because the earliest processors in this family were identified by model numbers ending in the sequence "86": the 8086, the 80186, the 80286, the 386, and the 486. Because one cannot establish trademark rights on numbers, Intel and most of its competitors began to use trademark-acceptable names such as Pentium for subsequent generations of processors, but the earlier naming scheme remains as a term for the entire family.
x86-64 is a 64-bit microprocessor architecture and corresponding instruction set; it is a superset of the x86 architecture, which it natively supports. It was designed by Advanced Micro Devices, which markets it under the name AMD64. This architecture has also been adopted under the names EM64T, IA-32e, and Intel64 by Intel. The names x86-64 or x64 are sometimes used as vendor-neutral terms to collectively refer to the two nearly identical implementations.

Sorry, I had to be picky :p.

You know what he meant :p

You're referring to the proper name for the CPU architecture, not necessarily the actual name of the OS. i.e. it's not called Windows XP x86-64 Edition, but simply Windows XP x64 Edition. Just how jAkUp wrote it.

My primary OS is still 32-bit Windows XP Pro SP2.

Maybe new beta driver released today will be a stable driver.

Still on Windows 2000 SP4. I need to try that new XP OS that I keep hearing about.

My primary operating system is Windows XP. Recently, I have been trying Windows Vista which I hope will eventually become quite suitable for gaming even though it has such high memory requirements.

Thanks for the heads up! :thumbsup:

I run Win Xp 32 as primary until nvidia releases a real driver for Vista and the sound works. Then I might consider Vista RC2 X64. We might be half way there. :)

I'm running Vista x86 RC1 build 5744 (soon to be RC2) and XP x32 in a dual boot config...Vista for everything except games. I reboot and run them in XP (no SLI in Vista yet :( ) Thinking about putting RC2 on my lappy...

The only problem I'm having now, is that none of my CAD programs (autoCAD, Inventor, Solidworks, Alibre) will work on Vista. They all have some sort of a check in them to see what the OS is and they won't let me install on Vista because they don't know what it is. Kinda makes me mad...I can kinda trick them by running them in XP SP2 compatibility mode but that generally just results in them locking up...oh well...I guess I"ll have to wait for a patch for them to add Vista support.
