Windows 7: Should I go for x64 or stick with x86?

You can put the 64 bit version of the browser down in your quick launch... and just use it from there... I've stuck with the 32 bit version of IE on most things due to the fact that Adobe is super gay and hasn't created a 64 bit flash player for IE... I hate adobe... Which is why if there was a different player for flash things, I'd use it instead. Just like I use foxit pdf reader instead of the overly bloated adobe reader. Seriously adobe? Do I always need an update utility running for flash, and adobe reader. Do I need the adobe reader to be always in memory for when I open up those pdf files? No!!! Die Adobe!!! (but I do love photoshop - the update utility :P )

Ok, thanks for the info. I share your interest for FoxIt, it is a very cute and fast little program

hi all. I've been using Win7 x86 since around Feb, and the previous two releases have suprisingly worked a lot better on my measly hardware than this one.. yet i did install x64 for a brief period just after I found how much faster 7 is in comparison to Vista, although it just wouldn't run very well. I found the OS slowing down a lot more under stress (unRARing, file sharing and browsing..) than the x86 70xx build which I assumed was since I have little RAM (1.5gb) yet since installing 7100 x86 and suffering the same sluggish performance it could well just be my current install...

I am going to say this for everyones sake, 1.5 gb of ram will run as well in 64 bit as it does in 32 bit... What are you system specs? I would probably guess it was due to not have a dual core processor or something of the sorts... heh, that's a pointless response by me... sorry!

Well... a bit too late but I could test Norton Ghost 14 on Windows 7 RC. Image creation and restoration was successful, but I just could test it on a virtual machine. I would prefer to test it on real hardware, but for reason I've mentioned before, I couldn't. u_u
I know that if this software works on Vista, it will work on Windows 7 too. The unique software that runs on Vista that I couldn't run on Windows 7 was DAEMON Tools, who has a new version compatible with Windows 7 now. The other programs went well all the time. maybe with some adjusts like "Windows Vista SP1 compatibility" o little things like that, nothing complicated.
Leave you some screenshots. ^_^

See you soon!
