Why no 64 bit support for the Fingerprint reader? sigh

I was thinking the same thing. Microsoft sure are doing a piss poor job of pushing 64 bit to the masses... they should be leading by example, but instead they are as equal in their unenthusiastic embrace of 64bit as any other company.

Any word on Vista support for the LifeCam?

It has not been released yet. It should be out shortly. Keep checking the Microsoft Hardware Vista Support site. I would expect it very soon now.
