So I just downloaded the free version of windows xp pro 64 bit edition. I was wondering if anyone had tried it or is using it, and if there is anything they though I should know.

Man, they weren't kidding were they?

Well, not proud that I'm running XP, but proud that it's in Win2K style interface ;)

Maybe only safe mode is free? You have to pay for normal mode?

Jokes aside, does it require a 64 bit processor to run? could that be the problem? Any errors?

it does require an athlon 64, I have a 3400. it should work, but normal mode is just hanging, no errors at all. it is a bit baffeling. and the normal mode is free too smart ass. heh. it is a 365 day trial.

they probably wont release a 64bit edition and just tranfer 64 bit to the longhorn OS. if not they will do something very assholish or microsoft like and release the 64 bit xp 6 months before longhorn release longhorn 32 then 6 months later longhorn 64 and then you have to pay 100 bucks for the upgrade.

thats just my opinion i could be wrong

the 64 bit version is not supposed to be done till 2k6, and with the version they have now not even installing right I doubt it will even be out by then. Microsoft is not my prefrence.

I think 64 bit will not be launched on the market unless people actually "need it" (meaning, it has to become popular), cause the price is not something you can Argue MS about...
Plus, we will have to be expecting all companies to adapt their softwares to this new tech. And probably and as usual, the only companies that adapt fast are the closely related to MS , like Symantec....

Anyway, why am i not good at linux? Hein?? WHYYYY??? what have i done to God to diserve this????? :cry:
