It's been over six months since copies of Windows Vista started hitting store shelves, but many users have yet to make the jump to the new operating system. Others, meanwhile, are taking the plunge head-on and upgrading straight to the 64-bit version of Vista. That's the case of one of our forum dwellers who calls himself Da_Boss. In a thread in our Windows forum, Da_Boss has recounted his installation of Vista x64 and his first few steps with the OS. He says his first day with Vista hasn't been particularly exciting, but that Vista is nonetheless "much better" than he expected.
Another couple of gerbils chimed in to say their own experiences with Vista x64 have also been largely positive, although a third one said he tried it and found it sluggish in Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2. What about you? Have you given Vista x64 a shot, or do you plan to, provided all your hardware is supported? Would you rather stick with a 32-bit version of Vista or Windows XP? Feel free to hit our forum if you have thoughts to share. And as always, don't forget to register a forums account if you don't already have one.
