x64 edition is not bad... just more trouble than its worth for no real noticeable performance increase in my opinion...... think ill just wait for vistas full release!

Smart man.

The only real 'noticable' performance increases will come when native x64 binaries are doing very processing intensive jobs. Encoding video is probably as good of an example as any. 64-bit can cut a 8-hour encoding process down by 20% or more.

Another prime example would be in server applications, such as Active Directory. Because x64 has much higher addressing space, Windows is able to cache entire directory in RAM (directory composed of say 300,000 or more users), and we all know how much faster RAM is than hard drives ;)

Windows itself is way snappier though and as for having problems yeah it was kinda annoying the first couple months I had it but been running the same install for a year now smoothly.

beyond benchmarks, the Win Ent SRv 2003 64-bit just plain "feels" faster.
