Windows XP 64-Bit - FREE!

OK , it is a preview and expires after a year but might be worth trying for those with Athlon 64 machines.

Thanks to Techbargains.

Thanks, I just built my AMD 64 3000+ system yesterday. One thing to remember, 32 bit programs will run slower under 64 bit OS. What the hell, I will give it a try.

Remember, many companies do not have 64 bit drivers out, so it's probably not worth it at the moment. Nvidia's drivers were released back in September, and ATI has yet to release anything.

Good point. I didn't think about that. I guess I will stick with XP for now.
