Dell gives you this rather dire warning when you try to buy a system with the OS installed:

"Peripherals you currently own or plan to purchase in the near future (cameras, printers, MP3 players, handheld devices) will most likely NOT work on a system purchased with Windows XP Professional x64, and some software applications may not work on the x64 operating system."


..um yeh exactly.
LOGIC PRO 7.2 w/ G4 1.67 1.5G RAM . Mac OSX 10.4.8, LIVE 6.0, Virus TI Keyboard, Korg EMX1, AXIOM 25 and Keystation Pro 88 midi controllers, Midisport 2x2 midi interface, UltraLite audio interface and 1 Rode NT3 mic "check, check".

don't laugh at that post, my VB equivelant could make you cry..

Live_Load()

On Error GoTo errhandler
if instr(app.Name) = "Demo" then
OperatorMadeCash = False
LoopingAppMadeCash = False
SaveNiceSoundIdea = False
SaveFileAllowed = False
end if

if Not OperatorMadeCash then
OperatorMadeCash = False
SaveNiceSoundIdea = False
end if

If instR(app.Version,".01") then call RandomWeirdness()

: errhandler
if FirsttimeFoundSecurityProblem then call RememberWhenBreached()
if Not FirsttimeFoundSecurityProblem AND Date = Two_Months_Later then call StopWorking();

End Sub

Hmmm.. Extremetech now bookmarked- most tests you read about just sound like a bunch of geeks getting their hands on some free hardware, playing games all week, and forwarding useless comparative tests. Thanks Pat, nice site.
