    Is it cross-platform?

    Re: Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor

    Sorry, the Upgrade Advisor beta does not support 64-bit editions of Windows XP
    Am I missing something here? Are MS not trying to push 64-bit computing?

    Re: Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor

    I recently un-installed XP 64-bit for this very reason. Many pieces of software simply do not work, and lots of M$ apps are useless. TBH I did not see any significant benefit form running XP x64.

    I only run x64 because I tried for a month to build the SATA drivers into our RIS XP x86 image without success. The x64 XP CD already had support for the SATA controller so we rolled that out instead.
