    Using some of the logic stated in previous posts, I have but one thing to say. BRING BACK THE 8-BIT OS'S!!!!!

    If Microsoft wants to make more money; then they should still make 32-bit. IMHO.
    Snow Leopard is 32-bit OS as well; it just can't run PowerPC CPUs.

    If there's still anyone subscribed to this thread, I would have to agree, x64 only. Most manufacturers are already phasing out 32-bit processors, and for those still using one, they are probably old enough that you wouldn't want to run a cutting edge OS like Windows 8 in the first place. Also, I do realize that there are still some with a relatively new and powerful 32-bit processor, but as long as Microsoft supports them, they will be used, some people just don't get that.

    We had Windows XP for 10 years to cover 32bit computing. Now we have Windows 7 in 32bit form as well. So Windows 7 should be able to do the job 10 years. Windows 8 should be 64bit and move forward. Windows Server 8 64bit and 128bit.

    It will be in 32 bit, and it should be. They're working hard on compatibility and this is part of it

    Yes I agree. The 32 bit soft can run on windows 64, all processor are 64 bit today and the old PC 32 bit can't be run windows 8 normally.

    There will be 32-bit OS versions for Windows 8, there are big businesses that still use old software that are not capable of running of 64-bit OS's.
