Have not used any other 64 bit than WIN 8 and it does seem to be more
stable than vista 32 Bit that I had before. Had to change when the machine
HardWare died. However, using Stardock Start8 my 8.1 functions like my
wife's WIN 7.

I have tired some 64 bit programs but so far have not found any really
important reason to use them only, unless the program has been designed to
work with only 64 bit. The only programs that I would like to have as 64
bit are graphics programs and the one I use the most "GIMP" is 64 bit also
for Windows so far I am happy. Office stuff that would use more that 4 GB
ram for a file is not something would like to use.

The GIS program that I use QGis is 64 bit and it is probably the only one
that really benefits of 64 bit architcehture.

The worse OS I have ever used was a 64-bit XP that was used in an office
for number crunching on a dual core 64-bit Intel processor.  It was much
worse than ME or Vista.

Well, to be fair, 64bit XP was ALWAYS buggy as hell, nothing to do with
64bit itself, it was just a really, really bad implementation on Microsofts

64bit Windows 7 rocks, as does 8 (if you can get past the god awful
cartoonish tablet UI, which I can't)... even installing ClassicShell (which
is a must on Windows 7 too) doesn't eliminate all of the warts (but it goes
a very long way)...
