Windows 8 x64 only?


Would it make sense to have W8 a 32 & 64 bit system while letting people know that there would be an upgrade to 64 & 128 bit system to come? After all, I don't think there's any other technology with more accelerated advance and people and companies will have to adapt. :smoke: Or is my ignorance showing?

Thinking about it ... yes that does make sense, myself I would go 64-bit but there may be people who would like to stay (for there own reasons) 32-bit.
