"http://news.com.com/Who+wants+or+needs+64+bits/2100-1006_3-6045931.html" was a big help: A very SMALL percentage of home users' and business' computers are 64-bit simply because "Most desktops and notebooks... can't even be upgraded to take full advantage of 64-bit computing." "I don't have usage statistics, but I expect they're pretty minimal," While some distributions of Linux, too, support 64-bit computing, the market share is small in comparison with giant Microsoft. Those users that do have 64-bit computing do so mainly because they want to "store data in more than 4GB of memory". The trend for the next two years: "When Vista hits, consumers will begin to see some 64-bit benefits, even if their applications remain 32-bit..." Hope this helps!
