Well, I was wondering what is the advantage of running XP-Pro 64 bit ??
Yes I know 64 bit memory management allows maximum of 8 gig ram, but only situation I can think of where you need so much ram would be if you're a gammer.
And even then it's gonna be tough to find games that run on 64bit system. (I'm not sure tho coz I'm not a gammer)
What I was thinking about was setting one machine just to run Photoshop so I could have full benefit of 4Gig ram I have installed right now on my new rig.
How about malware? Since everybody is using 32bit, I'm guessing you'd be safer with 64bit version but then again, I might be wrong there too.
I'm curious to hear what you guys are thinking.. :thumbsup:

Down in the bayou, Bubba called an attorney and asked, "Is it true they're suin' the cigarette companies for causing people to get cancer?
"Sure is Bubba. But why you asking?"
"Cause what I want to know is, I was thinking, can I sue Budweiser for all them ugly women I've slept with?"
