Is Vista 64bit faster than 32bit? Or what are its advantages over the 32bit version?

The only real advantage right now with 64 bit is it can access more than 3GB RAM. For that reason alone its worth it!

Interesting, DoPDF you say,

Interesting, DoPDF you say, I had been using CutePDF, but it won't run on Vista 64, despite it saying it should. I have thus been doing all my PDFing on my Mac since OS X supports PDF's natively. Shall have to get this DoPDF.

Also interesting, Adobe PDF Previewer in Outlook 2007 works for me, and so does send to One Note.
