Are you making the 64-bit transition?

64-bit technology has been available for a while. How many TR members are taking advantage of the additional speed?

The technology for 64-bit has been available for a while. How many TR members are taking advantage of the additional speed?

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

With my most recent computer upgrades, I installed the 64-bit version of Windows Vista. Although the hardware to support 64-bit has been around for a while, not all software manufacturers have made the leap. Moreover, device drivers continue to be an issue, and many devices simply aren't 64-bit compatible.

It seems that in my environment, it's full steam ahead for 64-bit. I also now have 64-bit drivers for all my printers, plotters, scanners, and so on. Although I still have some 32-bit configurations scattered about, all my new machines will reflect the newer technology.

How about you? Take the poll. Have you made the 64-bit leap? If not, join the discussion and tell us what the biggest obstacle is. Perhaps some TR peers could share some ideas on how it might be overcome.
