  • XP Pro 32 or XP Pro 64 as dual boot with Vista

    I recently pre-ordered the 9262 with Vista Ultimate as my OS with a RAID 0 setup. I've read so much about pros and cons of Vista vs XP that I do not know what to believe. I'm thinking my safest bet may be to just setup as a dual boot with Vista and XP. Now I'm wondering whether I should get 32 bit XP or 64 bit XP. Any thoughts?

    Go with 32 bit XP. From what it seems 64 bit XP could give you some problems when trying to run software meant for 32 bit XP and since 64 bit XP isn't really that popular it would be better go with 32 bit. To me it seems that 64 bit XP was more of an experimental thing and really shouldn't be used.
