I've been running CS4 on 64 biy Vista for about two months. I'd
characterize my use as light, mainly for development. The largest image
I've done is a 240 MB mosaic. Interestingly, this mosaic came out
distorted in 32 bit Vista, so there are apparently bugs that affect 32 bit
but not 64.

Large images, period. Otherwise, performance seems identical to the 32 bit
version.

Liquify does not preview correctly. Other than that, no problems. AMD
Phenom quad CPU, NVidea 6300, 8GB RAM.

Though I've personally run into almost no problems, PS CS4 is a bad
release. Adobe's reaction, so far, has been a disappointing: round of
finger pointing at the video manufacturers.

Give them some time and Adobe will get it right. Meantime, I'd recommend
skipping CS4 if you have a choice. I upgraded, of course, to support
customers.
