TweakUI is available for 64 bit. There are some print drivers
available and Creative also supports XP, as well as wacom tablets, and
some wireless network drivers are available. Hasrdware support may be
leaqn but it isn't non existent.

Video editing in XP 64 blows doors on 32bit XP, even with 32bit
programs. Nero works for Burning. Avast offers free for non commercial
use Virus software.

This guy could of done some better research.

I wasn't able to load Premiere 6 but pro 1.5 loads fine.

Over all I have had very few problems with XP 64. Mostly Canons lack
of support has been dissapointing, but I have mentioned before I have
32 bit systems to input/output files on if neccessary. Also, Canon is
starting to support their newer products. Working digitally in XP 64
has been a good experience for me. With the files that I generate I
have no problems sending them to 32 bit systems or Macs.

I don't see what the problem is.

Everything worked perfect for me right out of the box with the exception of
my Canon Scanner. I use mainly all graphics software like Autocad 2006,
Coreldarw 12, Canvas X, Photoshop, etc...and I REALLY notice a performance
increase!
