    Nothing extraordinary that can't be experienced with a 32-bit system.

    everything works smoothly here.

    more and more software are starting to take advantage of 64 bits, so it's all good.

    anyway, the 3.25 GB of RAM limit of the 32 bits systems is pretty limiting these days.

    I don't have any issues at all. I always hear about people saying they aren't switching to x64 for stability or compatibility issues but I have never had an issue. And yea, the ram limit is... limiting.

    I don't frequently experience any issues related to it being 64 bit. The only issues I ever have is if I install a bad driver. I have learned not to use any NVIDIA beta drivers. :ouch:

    There is also the 2GB per 32 bit application limitation that I have actually hit with a couple of products. Running them on a 64 bit OS does not fix this problem as 32 bit software is still 32 bit software. It will be nice when there is more 64 bit software. It's been slow in getting there.

    I had concerns when I purchased two new desktops in the past couple of months. I ordered them with Win 7 x64 and am glad I did. Issues: None.

    If my memory is correct, I've had exactly 1 blue screen since I did a clean install of Win 7 x64 in April 2010. The biggest issue for me is probably The Wow-Effect.

    No problems whatsoever using x64 for about 5 years now. Even more reliable than 32 bit in my experience....

    The only BSOD's I have gotten are from me testing unstable overclocks. I think the whole "there needs to be more 64bit applications" thing isn't much of an issue. The programs that need x64 (photo and video editing software, computational software, IDE's, etc) are x64. Browsers, media players and the like won't benefit from the extra ram.

    I too, was apprehensive; many many hours researching if my plotter was compatible. Said research was not reassuring (didn't want to spend thousands for a new one.)
    Bottom line: No issues with any hardware / programs.

    My only "problem" when upgrading from 32-bit XP to 64-bit 7 was losing the use of some old-favorite 16-bit apps, like dBase.

    Never had any crash on WP7 64. Software crash once in a while but the system itself is rock solid.

    I have no more issues with Win 7 64 than with the 32 bit version.
