FYI: it isn't really an issue of the processor you're using but what
type of Vista OS you've installed. All modern processors support the
AMD64 extensions and can therefore run x64 OS.

Not a good idea: to get the TSVN extension working in file-open/save
dialogs in your other applications (which most are still 32-bit) you
need the 32-bit TSVN installed too. So on x64 OS, most users have *both*
versions installed.
