Reasons to avoid Windows 7 32-bit

There is a great new post over here (http://adventuresinosd.blogspot.com/2011/04/top-10-reasons-to-avoid-windows-7-32.html) at Adventures in OSD on the reasons to avoid the 32-bit version of Windows 7 in the enterprise.

I strongly agree with all of his points and made one conclusion – if you are going to run a 32-bit OS then stick with Windows XP 32-bit, if you are going to run a 64-bit OS then run Windows 7 64-bit. Don’t give any other options.

I have deployed both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7 in environments too and you are basically creating yourself twice the work with a nightmare of ongoing maintenance.
