    64bit Vista and Server 2008 work fine in boot camp. Drivers supplied on the install disks (from March this year) work without any problems.

    Agreed, I have Windows Vista 64-Bit Ultimate Installed on my Penryn Macbook Pro and it worked out of the box from the Drivers on the CD!

    I seem to recall that for 64bit Windows on a Mac it's Penryn only at this point. Anyone have this working on other systems?

    No problem! The page you linked to should have been updated, it's Apple's fault! ;)

    I'm pretty sure that it works with the previous version (i.e. any Santa Rosa) as long as you have the boot camp version in the link above. Might work on older models too.

    What do you mean feminine lol? I use home prem. because it only cost $100. If you think ultimate is worth the extra money, go for it.

    Vista x64 is very stable.

    I have Ultimate and then I got Home Basic; Home Basic is so much better. Faster and less bloatware.

    I can't understand why people complain that they're computer could only run Home Basic when it's obviously the best!

    Boot Camp's drivers support 64-bit Windows on the Mac Pro and MacBook Pro.

    Boot Camp supports 64-bit Windows on all Macs. You just have to find the drivers.
