There will be OEM versions of Both. Microsoft won't make the switch entirely to 64 bit until after 7.

Thanks, I was curious about 64 bit. Dell chat support said they didn't support Vista 64 bit. He didn't know about windows 7 64 bit. When you said MS wont make the switch entirely to 64 bit, what do you mean exactly? do you mean the next OS after Windows 7?

Dell do sell some computer with a choice of Vista 32 or x64.

The next version after Windows 7 will probably be x64 only. This does not means 32bits application won't work anymore.

Dell sell systems with Vista 64 installed. It is asinine that one of their C/S reps would tell you they don't support it. I would have roasted the fool...

Thats crazy right there, If you look at it sarcastically, they really don't support any vista, They TRY to support it. Just saying.
Agree that after windows 7 the next OS will be 64 only if I am guessing. Good indicator is exchange 2007 does not support 32 bit OS for its host.
Its about time to switch over to ubuntu anyways. Dell and HP are selling it as a workstation alternative now on their PCs again.
