:is using 64 bit Vista at work. We still have some old 16 bit legacy apps, but it's easy to make a virtual 32 bit XP machine or to remote into a 32 bit server to run those apps

Now if Adobe would just make a 64 bit version of flash. I know it's a minor app so it's definitely not a deal breaker, but it just annoys me that they haven't done it yet.

IMO the biggest hurdle is convincing my coworkers, fellow IT people mind you, that we need to start preparing for 64 bit. It's so fucking annoying when I find out that fellow coworkers who are supposed IT professionals either don't know that 32 bit is nearing it's end of life or they make the argument that no one needs more than 4GB of ram right now, therefore, we don't have to do anything about it.

I think a lot of my coworkers think we should go to 32 bit Win7 in a year or so...then later go to 64 bit. I say let's start going to 64 bit sooner rather than later. rip that bandaid off quick even if we really don't need it. I really don't want to have to rebuild someone's Operating system just to give them a memory upgrade.

I'd like to go w/ Windows 7 64-bit

However my current laptop doesn't have all of the drivers needed for Vista 64. I think it's missing Wireless and BlueTooth, and then either LAN or Sound.

I think there's a way to shoe-horn a "close-enough" signed driver for one of the above, but it's still annoying.

Why is this article in the mobilization section right below it as well? What does this have to do with mobilization and why post an article twice?

Yup. Anything that was a problem on XP 64 bit likely won't run at all on W7, so what's the difference.
