Just a few (unexpected) issues which make me think I'd be better off beta\ntesting the 32-bit version (although the 64 version has mostly run well)\n\n1. I can't find a virus checker that works. Unbelievably, Microsoft's\nWindows One Care won't work. The free version Microsoft recommends from CA\ndownloads and installs, but doesn't work completely -\- it scans, but reports\nitself as turned off and has no real time checking. The other "free trial"\nfrom Trend Micro requires a registry edit (and system modification) before it\nwill run in 64-bit mode -\- no thanks.\n\n2. I own three printers and even the ones with 64-bit drivers available for\nXP won't install on Vista, so no printing for me. Other hardware, including\nmy scanner, is also not going to work yet. Of course the only way to know\nany of this is to try the 64 bit version and see what happens. Some 64-bit\ndrivers written for XP do work -\- Vista said it couldn't find a driver for my\nRealtec Audio 97, but when I installed the 64-bit driver from MSI website, it\nworked fine.\n\n3. In summary, it's just too hit and miss for me to be happy playing with\nVista 64 right now. If I could print, I'd probably keep it. Of course I\nhave no assurances my 32-bit printer drivers will work either. Anyway, Vista\n32 is making its slow way down the pipeline to my computer overnight and\nwe'll see how that goes.\n\nThink twice before you download the 64-bit version. I have an Athlon 64-bit\nscreaming machine, but it was humbled by the lack of drivers.
