Windows "It's the end of the line for 32-bit operating systems, Microsoft has proclaimed at its annual Windows Hardware Engineering conference After the software giant has gotten over its hangover from partying like it's 1999 with the release of Windows Server 2008, it will have one last 32-bit hurrah with a 'release 2' update to Windows Server 2008, and that'll be it. 32 bit CPU: if you have one, learn to love Vista - you're stuck with it.There will be no more versions of Windows - on desktop or server - that will work on 32-bit CPUs like Pentium 4 or Core Duo."

the fact of the matter is it took what 5 years from xp to vista? in 5 (heck even 2) more years there wont be any 32 bit cpu's even avalible for the consumer desktop market likely. 64 bit is just the simple evolution of things. personally i welcome it. it means more 64 bit optimized code. bring it on ;)
