Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

I haven't tried all of the builds, but in 7000 my laser printer, which is not supported in x64 past XP, installed automatically. Before that I had to mess with it to get it working. Then with 7068 the auto install stopped and back to having to do it myself. This continues with 7100. Just about to try 7137 and see what happens. Other than that they seem the same or better as time goes on.

x86 6956 was a complete bag of excrement, its the only x86 revision i downloaded & it turned my machine upside down, i reinstalled it & still it gave me ...BSODs, lock ups, GUI errors & the most sluggish response ive ever had from ANY OS.

that was more than a step back..... it was a leap , but thankfully it was an anomaly & every x64 build since has continued to impress.
