The reverse is true. First of all, no home user ever bought an 8-bit
machine. The 8086 (the first Intel 16-bit machine) was eventually
replaced by the 80386 series of microprocessors -- the first 32-bit
ones. It's been a loooong time since those have been available.

I think you'd have to admit that the 80386 went faster than the 8086,
and not just because of clock speed increases.

Dell only ships the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows Vista "Ultimate"
- -- all others are 32-bit versions. Nobody is going to pay the
difference, which ends up being around $200, to get more OS features.
