Windows made the shift last server release (2008r2 is x64 only).
So it's only the OSS server families which support 32bit, likely because
both BSD and Linux support lots of platforms outside of x86.

FWIW, Mac OS X Lion will only support x64 as well. IMHO, this is a good move
for modern operating systems since there are always going to be alternatives
for those still using i386 architecture. How long has Solaris/SPARC been
64-bit? At least ten years if not more...
