I know someone who has (but I don't know if it was 32 bit or 64 bit). 
He had a little trouble installing, because Vista tightens security 
slightly:  you need to run the installer with higher than default 

Whichever version of Vista you run, R will be 32 bit for some time to 
come:  we don't have a 64 bit toolchain available yet, or a volunteer to 
do the builds.  (I'm unlikely to be upgrading to 64 bit Windows in the 
foreseeable future.)
