    Most manufacturers are for laptops/desktops, it clings on in netbooks etc though, which is probably not a big deal, very few people upgrade those beyond 2-3GB.

    Windows Server 2008 R2 is 64bit only, I would expect Windows 8 will be, as I imagine it's minimum spec will rule out most 32bit machines anyway, the only 32bit machines that are still acceptably fast are laptop Core Duo anyway, in 2-3 years they'll feel like an early Pentium 4 does now and lack the graphics technology for Aero.
