Are you using an 64-bit OS?

Level 6
I keep a 32 bit OS (XP) running on a virtual machine, in case I need to to run some very old software that won't install/run on the latest Windows. But in general I would only use a 64-bit OS on my main computer, because fewer developers are supporting 32-bit versions of new software.


Level 23

I remember a stack of old 16-bit 8086's at work that had been in a closet for many years... I should have grabbed one of those chips... just to keep a little piece of computer history.


Level 14
I've been running 64bit OS since release of Windows Vista. Yeah, that one. It was the first OS that had reasonable 64bit driver support. WinXP 64bit Edition was something I preferred not to bother with since support was pretty bad in general.
