64-bit Windows is not popular because it costs much more than the 32-bit
versions (though MS will send you a 64-bit upgrade disk for a small fee
if you already own a copy of Vista). Also, most people out there don't
know what the hell a 64-bit OS is.

Next, there are very few 64-bit-compiled applications out there, so the
64-bit OS gets you nothing when you're running 32-bit Office or SQL Server.

The only place that 64-bit OSs make sense really are on servers, and
nobody buys servers from computer shops.
