I can report favourable results with Vista 64-bit.

I found a bit of hesitancy in the rotation of a big protein when the
anti-aliasing was set to make ribbons look smooth.

All in all, I am still quite pleased with the results.

(My only real gripe about Chimera is the awkward menu descent when
changing the color of anything in the scene - but that issue is
independent of the operating system).
