Windows XP Professional x64 Edition is designed to address the most demanding business needs of technical workstation users who require large amounts of memory and floating point performance in areas such as mechanical design and analysis, digital content creation, and scientific and high-performance computing applications.

Note: The Windows XP Professional x64 Edition - CD will not be available until approximately late February. If you prefer to not wait for the CD version, you are welcome to continue to process your order for the download version.

I hope that they actually release this and support it. I have been holding off on building an AMD64 system (plus waiting for the revisions of nForce 4 to mature) to see what MS is going to do. Linux just isn't my bag (yet).

Would love to hear what other AMD64 users have to say about the beta/RC and vendor support in their x64 systems.

Being AMD64 user... only thing I have to say about it: "No". That's because I don't bother downloading or testing it.
If you want to know about availability of drivers, head to AMD web site - Vendors direct "support" is still very limited.

No doubt SiliconFreak has "something" to say now...

Your Tequila? Don't you mean "My precioussss Tequila"?

But seriously, WinXP64 is not ready yet, so vendor support has not really kicked in yet.
