Re: Bad experience for Dell with Microsoft windows vista home 64bit combination

Thanks for your post.  After reading that, I probably won't be buying a 64 bit version of Windows 7.  The only real advantage I see with a 64 bit OS is to address more than 3gb of RAM.  For me, 2gb of RAM is plenty, even for virtualization.  Having 2 identical dual channel 1gb memory modules is plenty for home use.  It even works great with VMWare and 1 or 2 virtual clients.  Heck, Ubuntu Linux runs great with only 1gb of memory and no swap file.
