Microsoft has released Service Pack for the whole x64 family of Windows Server and XP families. Of course it's just a release candidate, but anything will probably work better then my current flavor of Windows XP Pro x64 with SP1 on my system. this is dated 11/2006, has anyone tried it?

Get it HERE

I've been using it for a while now. No problems to report. If anything x64 is slightly faster at running some apps.

I just tired to download it, " The download you requested is unavailable. If you continue to see this message when trying to access this download, go to the "Search for a Download" area on the Download Center home page. " I get the same thing when I search as well

I can report favorably since installing it a couple of weeks ago. sp2 for xp64 has handled recent issues that I have had. Its kind of funny, but after a year and a half of using xp x64 and loving it, that only recently (last 2 months) issues came up. At any rate sp2 fixed it. :shamrock:
