    Same here... That way more Games and Programs can be 64 bit as well and all those 32 bit users can upgrade too.

    +1 ,its about time the PC as a gaming platform set a standard ie: x64 then is no confusion over compatability with various games/apps.

    since i installed Vista x64 ive not had a single game fail to run ,maybe ive just been very lucky idk whereas ppl i know that still use XP have had problems with games not working.
    I'd love to see Windows 7 as a x64 bit only product ,Forget x86 versions ,it's time to move on.

    Ya, he said this was the beta Vista(or whatever,pre alpha or somthing.), i was saying that that screen shot is uglier then the Vista we have now, and that i hope Windows 7 doesnt look like that.

    I'm thinking what i like NOT see in Win7.

    Any thing thats not any good for gaming sod it off lol. I'm sure they will do shi loads of versions of it anyways why not a gaming one.

    I'm sure they will stick IE in there.

    Why woudlnt they stick IE on there? Cant get on the web to get a better one if they dont at least give us an option to get online. :)

    Vista isnt that bad of a performance hit compared to that of XP. If you say it is and you still get a great gaming experience, then you are just being to damn spoiled/picky. (not directed towards you but a general statement)

    Options when installing all that kind of stuff so in this case IE or \ and Firefox as options. OR when the OS is installed there's a install icon for either..

    Yeah I agree with the Look as well, but we have to remember this is only Build 6780.

    Please stop using caps lock. The only place to get Windows 7 is through Microsoft and a public beta isn't released yet.

    Another thing that I would like to see is an option in the properties box of a file/folder in the Sharing tab for setting a password. You type out the password and then you have to type it again to confirm it.

    Agree its time to move on its time to make a full use of the today's hardware and softwares, i think vista its nice and hope this new OS delivery a way better performance and features and pull out unnecessary stuff or let us customize in a very little detail...

    thats ridiculous, are there any currently selling processors that dont support 64-bit processing? (im not talking about newegg selling pentium D still, im talking about intel and amd still selling trays.)

    I agree, 64-bit is the future. We can't keep beating around the bush with 32 bit operating systems. Hardware has supported 64 bit architecture for 5+ years. I think its about time everyone starts to take advantage of it.
