My dual Xeon 4GB system finally unfortunately succummed to win-rot with Win XP Pro/32. The system will not even reboot correctly in SAFE mode. So......it looks like an OS reload and application reinstall will be necessary. This seems to happen to me between 2-3 years for some reason.
With that in mind, I am wondering if I should now go to Windows 7/64 instead of reloading XP Pro. I figure you all out there have some fairly good information and sage advice for this.
My dual Xeon will support 64 bit mode.
I believe that applications I am using now, are Win 7 compatible but of course I'd have to now get the 64 bit versions. Any problems running 32 bit apps on the 64 bit platform these days?
Thanks for your wisdom.
