Just curious: XP 64-bit?

I'm just a little curious about this: Is anyone using 64-bit Windows XP as their PC workstation OS? I'm wondering about program compatibility, as I would imagine that the applications developed for 64-bit are likely only developed for the Vista kernel...

Just curious, I'm not in any mood to reformat just yet.

XP 64 is my OS of choice. Current limitations that I have found are no support for certain key Matrox codecs that I need, and all Photoshop OpenGL features are disabled.

I am running XP64 on my laptop (along with both 32 and 64 bit Vegas) and am about to install it on my render workstation in the office.

Works GREAT!

Hmm... I wonder if I should look into downgrading. Only reason I'm using Vista is for the 64 bit support...

The question is, are you having issues with Vista 64? If not, I reccommend you stick with it, since it is going to have more support moving forward. If you are having issues, it may be worth it to experiment with XP64.

Well, no, I'm not having issues with anything workflow related...

...I'm... having issues with playing Team Fortress 2...
