    Windows 7 x64 (RTM via MSDN)

    My laptop only supports upto 2 GB RAM, so x64 makes no sense for me. I would lose some performance for no real gain elsewhere, so x86 for me.

    My son has a new Dell Studio 15 with 4 GB RAM and if I can convince him to let me install x64 on his, I might give that a try. Heck, I might sweeten the deal and offer to put 8 GB in the laptop if he lets me put Win 7 on there.

    He mainly plays games and does simple word processing and internet searching for schoolwork. He shouldn't have too many problems.

    Windows 7 Build 7600 Laptop and desktop. Also OSX 10.5.7 and 10.6 Snow on Laptop

    Well I am now using Windows 7 on my main everyday PC, although I do have a backup install of Vista just incase anything goes wrong. At the moment I am still using 32Bit version with no reall problems and happy with the performance. I am reluctant to go 64Bit on this machine as I was keen to get Win7 up and running so installed build 7000 before a 64Bit version available. I now have a lot of software installed and can't be arsed to start all over again. Speed is good and after going back to Vista for a day on here I really notice a big difference and would not go back.
    I will be going 64Bit though but just not on this machine. Will be starting with my laptop that has the needed 4Gig of ram onboard.
    64Bit will come on this machine probably in a couple of months when 1/ I can be bothered and spend the time to start over and 2/ When I am happy that I know I can do everything I need in 64Bit and as yet that is not the case.

    I think I am always going to need multiple opperating systems though as there is always something you need to do in one op that you can't do in another, and I do like to play. lol

    x86 is slowly going away.

    Mobo's are already capable of supporting up to 32gigs of memory. There really is not much point to x86 unless your on a dated PC.

    Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

    The more people use 64-bit the more software devs will support it

    W 7 64-bit Ultimate

    Hello all.

    I've tried every version to become "available" so far, both 32-bit and 64-bit. I now have the 64-bit "official" beta installed and it's doing great, no looking back. With 8GB of RAM it's sweet!

    Later Ted
