Last night I finally bit the bullet and wiped my corporate box and installed Windows Vista 64-bit. I am determined to march forward no matter what.
Initial impression of the 64-bit OS?: SMOKING FAST
The only driver issue was for my Plantronics DSP 500 USB headset, and that wasn’t even a driver issue really, it was just a configuration issue. So far everything is working great, and I’ve got a VPC of XP waiting on a second drive in case I run into any programs that aren’t 64-bit compatible.
The next OS decision it whether or not I should flatten my laptop and run Windows Server 2008 as a workstation OS.
