I have one question. Does Vista Home premium run at 64bit?

DO NOT WANT THE VISTA! I heard from a friend that it automatically deletes files that it believes are 'unofficial', in other words, pirated. Having experience with Microsoft and all their little mess ups, how would you trust it not to delete important files that it simply did not recognize?

Where did u get the info on the piracy thing? ie deleting files. Havent heard about this before. It's most probably hype and crap spread around by Vista haters, if Microsoft did this they would be wiping out 3/4 of their market...

Yea.....I heard from my uncle's best friends cousin's mother in-law who lives in Africa in a little hut that Vista will start your computer on fire if you install an Apple product like iTunes.

You guys are soooo funny.
Yea Vista automatically deletes files.......... I've had Vista on two systems for two months and I have no files left on my computers...........they're gone..........zap! LOL!
