Office Suite 2010 works great using either Windows 7 Ultimate or Vista Ultimate. If your work uses EN x3 with Word, then it is highly recommended that you wait until Endnote fixes the compatibility issues with Word 2010. They might come out with a new EN x4 to be in alliance with Word 2010. Since Office Suite 2010 is still in Beta, there might be enough time for Endnote to fix the problem.
I had to uninstall Office Suite 2010 and re-install Office 2007 to continue using Endnote x3.

Firstly, Office 2010 runs well on all versions Vista and Windows 7 not just Ultimate. Naturally the if you're running the 32bit versions you're restricted to the 32bit version of Office 2010; 64 bit versions of Windows Vista and Ultimate will run both albeit not simultaneously. Secondly, a compatibility update will be possible with the 32 bit version, but much more difficult on the 64 bit version. Given that it took X3 to finally work with Office 2007 SP2 on a 64 bit system, this may be more challenging and most likely will require significant, but not impossible, changes to function in native 64 bit mode (read: new version). Some notes from Microsoft directly about Office 2010 which should answer some questions about future compatibility.
Side-by-side installations No support is provided for side-by-side installations of 64-bit and 32-bit editions of Office, including across applications. For example, there is no support for side-by-side installations of the 2007 Microsoft Office system 32-bit with Office 2010 64-bit, or for Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010 64-bit and Microsoft Excel 2010 32-bit.
Deployment Considerations A key consideration is that you cannot install native 64-bit Office 2010 on computers that have 32-bit Office applications and third-party add-ins installed. You must uninstall the 32-bit Office applications and add-ins before you can install 64-bit Office 2010. If you have 32-bit third-party Office applications and add-ins that are required for users, you can install the default option, which is 32-bit Office 2010 (WOW64 installation) on computers that run supported 64-bit editions of Windows.
Advantages of running 64 bit Office
Running Office 2010 64-bit provides the following advantages:
Disadvantages of running 64 bit Office
The following issues might affect compatibility:
The following feature deprecations may affect compatibility:
Microsoft Access The Replication Conflict Viewer is removed from both the 32-bit and 64-bit installations of Office 2010. This functionality can still be implemented by using the ReplicationConflictFunction Property. ReplicationConflictFunction is a Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) routine in the running database that can be used to resolve synchronization conflicts.

There is no solution to the compatibility issue with Word 2010 and Endnote x3 or x2. We just have to wait for Endnote to fix the problem. Word 2010 works awesome without Endnote addin. However, I tried using Reference Manager 11 and surprisingly it works with Word 2010. Although I do not have Referece Manager 12, I would expect it to work with Word 2010 as well.
