     That is what was done and it was called FUD!  Have you gone back to the 
original message to see what was actually said?  The person said 4Gb+ better 
off with 64-bit but 32-bit is a safer bet.  He then added that no matter which 
choice he was sure the person he was talking to would be happy.

     Let that sink in for a second.  He pointed out the benefits of 64-bit. 
He pointed out, rightly, that the safer bet is 32-bit (this was explained by 
me, in a message a few days ago) and he further left the choice to the user 
with a blessing for *both*.

     That was called FUD.  If someone is over-reacting it is the people 
playing the FUD harp.
