Hi everyone,

Is there any general consensus as to which version of Windows 7 — 32-bit or 64-bit — is the best one to install on top of Fusion or Parallels as just a general-purpose Windows? My situation is that I want to learn a bit about Windows, and will probably install NVivo soon, but am not sure what other programs I may install in the future.

Thanks.

simplest answer.

64 bit runs everything.
32 bit does not.

I have XpPro (32) and Win7 Pro (64) installed on mine.
