There's no point to the 32bit version of this OS, there are so many processes running before you've even installed your own software. I tried it on my home pc a basic dual core with 4 gigs of ram and it was a sluggish ordeal, where as an work coleague of mines home pc is a quad core and he was certainly impressed with the 64bit version. They should market it soley as a next gen OS. 32bit? Stick with XP.

It is weird.
Surely making it 32 bit as well, makes the coding alot more complicated than it needs to be?

I mean, even budget PC's you buy are fitted with 64 bit processors as standard. If anyones updated in the past 2 years, they'll have one capable.

Though, heres me with a 32bit Windows XP at the moment....
