64-bit is old hat, Microsoft mulling 128-bit versions of Windows
Believe it or not, Windows 7's successor(s) have been in the planning and early development stages for a while now. We haven't posted anything about any of them yet, but we've been watching closely to see if anything really interesting turned up. Exactly two weeks ago, it did. A LinkedIn profile, which has already been taken down, for a Robert Morgan, Senior Research & Development at Microsoft, has shone a sliver of light on the possibility of 128-bit support coming to Windows 8.

When Windows 8 comes out, 64-bit support should be much better and not bringing out a 32-bit version of Windows 8 wouldn't be as catastrophic for sales as not brining out a 32-bit version of Windows 7.

There are still a lot of programs that don't work on 64-bit systems, 64-bit drivers aren't always available either (or they can't be installed because they aren't signed) and in office environments 64-bit isn't necessary because you don't need 4Gb of RAM to use Office...

Definitely agree on that one, but Microsoft probably didn't have much choice because of bad Vista sales and Seven has to make up for these bad sales (and a 64-bit only versions probably wouldn't do that).
