No need to go 64 bit ever unless A) You have 4 Gigs of ram or more and need to use all of it for multiple applications (since few programs can even access more than 2Gb of RAM at a time anyway) or B) You have a 64-bit program that you'd like to run on a 64-bit OS for best performance.

I find Win7 to be as fast as Xp, polished, very well thought out and not a single issue thus far using the RC (But i've been testing since the first MSDN betas). Beats Vista hands down if you ask me.

Lemme know what you can get on that preorder, the MS website link is for the US only...
