Windows XP pro 64 Bit

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Is it just me, or is Windows XP Pro 64 Bit a real pain in the you know what when it comes to installing drivers, Anti-Virus software, or anything of that sort. And, if it isn't for you, please tell me what you did!

from what i heard, 64 bit windows requires a whole load of new drivers, if you have old hardware like digital cameras apparently windows 64bit wont install them, from what a friend told me...

64 bit anything is a pain...good luck finding drivers for most cards and motherboard, good luck finding ANY program that even remotely uses 64 bit, cause you really wont (not for windows at least) its best to just stick with 32 bit xp for the next 3 years.

64 bit is generally Still very BETA IMO its got alot of bugs and its Compatibility problems are huge.
post #6 of 12
it isnt in beta is it, im sure i seen 64bit Windows on a shelf in PCWORLD the other week...

*****...by beta he means its still in testing by other companies...sure the OS is released, hell even microsoft still doesnt have it right, and wont for a while, also programmers have to program their software in 64 bit and so do game companies and a lot of them arent very willing to do it.
