  1. If it were me, I would wait a couple of months and get W7.
    Its due out in Oct.
    It is basically a upgraded Vista.

    I have been running Vista since it came out with no problems at all.
    I havent tried the RC of W7 but I hear that it is better and it is based on the same code.
    I think the support for XP will begin to fade before long so you dont want to fall into that hole.
    If you currently have either one I would run your progs with that for now but if you can wait then I would.
  2. Vista is best with 64-bit as those are often demanding. You can use XP 64-bit for some, but it was not a “consumer OS” hence lacks drivers. However only CS4 is 64-bit.

    But if you don’t use 64-bit versions, you can still have like 4GB or more RAM for multi-tasking large files files.
