Default Windows xp 64-bit

Does anyone use windows xp 64-bit as an operating system? If so how does it run and are there any issuses with it? The reason im asking is i have a amd quadcore processor and without a 64 bit operating system it only runs on two of the processors. also i have 6 gig of ram and windows xp 32 bit only handles up to 4 gig of ram. any info would be greatly appreciated.

No version of Pro Tools will run on XP-64.

Even if you COULD get it running, there would really be no advantage as PT is still a 32-bit program.

Depending on your computer skills, if you want to jump onto the bleeding edge, there's always stuff to try. I only recomend that stuff for the diehards. A few suggestions though:
  • Always experiment on a completely separate drive.
  • You WILL hose your system experimenting, so be prepared. (I hosed my rig 3x last week trying to make PT Native better for us )
