Since I installed XP x64 updates it's been acting a bit weird...

  1. Almost seems as if Microsoft deliberately makes problems on XP x64 to
    promote windows 7 ?!?

  2. Actually, there was something even worse - Windows XP for 64-bit Computers,
    I think it was called. IAC, it was Itanium only, and hopeless for desktop
    work.

    There's no conspiracy here, but XP x64 was never intended to be a mainstream
    OS. That's why there was never a retail version. That being said, it was
    essentially just Windows Server 2003 SP1, with slightly different tuning and
    the games back. ;) As such, a solid and dependable OS, but not flashy. And
    drivers have continuted to be an issue.
