XP 64-bit adds absolutely nothing compared to XP 32-bit. Stability-wise - 32bit technology has been around since Windows 95, 64-bit technology is so new we're still learning about what it can do for us.

This'll be because virtually all applications will still be using 32-bit at this time, therefore leaving the Windows the only thing to use the 64-bit functionality which to my mind makes it a pointless upgrade.

Add to that of course when Windows Vista comes out later this year, it'll have native 64-bit support built-in as standard.
