     There is a difference between using 64 on a server and 64 on a desktop. 
For example, the lack of a 64-bit flash player:

     People running servers generally aren't going to be viewing Flash content 
so that's not an issue.  Desktop users, especially those who come to this list 
for advice, generally do view flash content so handling how to get that 
working is a consideration and thus a valid reason to err on the side of caution.
