I know that the latest version of bootcamp supports 32 bit Vista. Has anyone heard whether the Leopard version of bootcamp will support 64 bit Vista?

No one but Apple knows for sure. We'll probably get a better glimpse of Leopard at the WWDC on June 11th.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

if you need it so much why don't you try it? But if not why bothering with Vista? I tried Vista on my father's PC. It's a piece of......! Way worsee than XP. If you need windows apps try XP. Don't even bother with Vista.

I've ran Windows Vista x64 via Boot Camp, it's not really a problem except the Eject Key, Bluetooth, iSight and WiFi are unsupported but apart from that it's as smooth as a whistle. :p

I've returned to 32-bit, I think it's good personally, it's just a shame it's such a Hog on the Resources, 14 Gig Hard Drive and 1 Gb of RAM is a bit too much for an OS in my view and I suppose alot of others aswell.

For work I needed one laptop that I could use for Windows and Mac development... I got the latest MacBook Pro and am now running Vista x64 on it with few problems. Bluetooth and wireless both work -- in fact the only things that don't work are iSight and any of the Fn keys. I remapped the right-Apple key to "Delete" so I can log in (via a registry key).

I'm pleasantly surprised that it works as well as it does...
