I've been using XP Pro for some time on AMD 1800+, 512M RAM, 120G HD, and obviously a bit underpowered. Good enough for capture, rip, author, etc, but for transcoding and NLE/real time editing, it sucks.
I'd love to build a 64bit Linux machine but not sure if the money will be better spent on a higher end 32bit XP setup.
Any thoughts on good interoperability and stability mobos and cpus for 64bit Linux?
Any thoughts on which distro is the most mature and widely used 64bit?
Any thoughts on 64bit editing/transcoding apps?
Any thoughts on where I'd see higher performance on high end 32bit XP setup vs middle of the road 64bit Linux (given that all/most hardware is the same)? My thought is that a middle of the road 64bit Linux would out perform 32bit if for no other reason than I'd have much more efficient and increased use of memory addressing space...........moving bigger chunks faster.

It would be nice to have more machines rendering on a network.
