To some degree i would agree (i hate the fact that X64 applications aren't developed nearly as they should), but imo its not fair leaving out all the people and corporations who use it.

There is still Vista which will be supported for a while to come..... most everyone will be upgraded to a x64 processor by the end of Vista's lifecycle, and if not... well that's their own faults.

Why should they upgrade if they don't really have a reason why ? Just cause some think that having a X32 base system is bottlenecking technology ? In fact its devs that do those things, having a X32 option available there, isn't going to stop or bottleneck technology (not everyone is in to gaming or has money to update periodically).
Edit as for vista its requirements are pretty high i wouldn't say its an option.

Too bad they're not ditching 32bit with Win7.
I was kind of confused as to why they're still bothering with 32 as well. It doesn't really matter though. 64bit is going to be marketed as the defacto standard anyway, 32 bit will only be available through request. Ram requirements will force any stragglers into 64bit as well.
