Windows x64

Having migrated to x64, I thought I post a few notes on how this went.

I'll add specific topics later, but overall, it wasn't too bad. I did a clean install onto a new disk and left my old apps on their original disks. Most things work, some things don't, which is really annoying.

I'm not too sure why certain software vendors don't release x64 drivers for their hardware or an x64 compatible version of their software. From all the info I've read, it's not too difficult to write a new driver, or recompile the software to work in 64-bits.

I guess it's just economics and sheer laziness on the vendors part.
