I'm running 64 bit Vista and have been for quite a while now (about 6 months) and haven't found any major problems. My TV card won't work with it (no 64 bit drivers available) - but I've got a TV for a monitor, so I just plugged the cable in the back (I don't record TV either).
Nearly all programs that I've tried have worked - most in 32 bit mode. The Wow64 engine is pretty robust and will allow almost anything to work. I've had a few not work, but have either put them in my XP Virtual Machine, or have found other programs to do the same thing.
I've got 40 or 50 programs installed now, and most are 32 bit. I wasn't able to get the 64 bit version of Firefox to work, so I stuck with the 32 bit version. My main "pain" was the setup software for my new Sony Digital Reader. It doesn't install, and gives no errors - but I really don't need it as it acts like a USB drive when I plug it in. So I just use Windows Explorer to update it.
Ensure that you can get drivers for all of your hardware devices BEFORE upgrading. Once you've got them you'll be able to run anything that you want.
