    I'm trying to decide whether its worth it to download Vista at the moment, can anyone share if you prefer it or change back to XP?

    Does it function well? Any bugs or errors?

    Just a specific question - I have a 20 inch iMac with Intel Dual Core, do I run the 32 or 64 bit version?

    i changed back to XP... it's not as cool with games (compatibility wise...)


    is it 20" core duo or core 2 duo? both of which are dual core (2 cores)

    core duo is 32bit, so you run 32bit
    core 2 duo is 64bit, so you can run either

    Hey,

    I wouldn't recommend it at the moment really. Maybe later when they iron out more bugs. Uninstalling it was a hassle that i really don't want to go through again. Compatibility is also another issue, things like my usb drive weren't compatible. It's fun for a little bit, to see what it's like and all but hardly worth it at the moment.

    Hi
