Some doubts on switching to Windows 7

Hi guys, i am currently using a Core i7 based machine with Windows XP and i've been feeling the need for a snappier interface like the one OSX and 7, since XP doesn't do the job anymore in 2010
I've used 7 when it was in beta and i had some problems with it like printers not working and so on, but now it seems to get more popular and most of my stuff will probably work on it, however i have some doubts, first of all, are there any annoying problems with it like on vista?
I've also been thinking to get 7 Pro x64 since i plan to have this OS for some 5 years and my motherboard supports like 16GB of ram so a 64 bit OS would be future-proofing it, however is 64bit Window 7 as painful as 64 bit XP?
I saw this Comparison chart http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7_editions and Windows 7 Pro seems like the best option after Ultimate, (i want to save some money) and i don't even know what most of the features that don't come in Pro mean, however i might jump on Ultimate just to future proof and make sure that i have the right thing
So looking at it closer i think my 2 questions are if 64 bit is ok and if Ultimate is worth the extra cash
