However, I'm sure you recognize that the days of 32bit apps, and software that will run on Xp, are surely numbered. At some point, you just won't be able to hold onto it any longer.
I'm not sure where your'e going with this? Windows 7 primarily shipped in 32 bit versions and Windows XP and 7 both have 64 bit options.

Yes, my understanding is Q4 2013, or Q1 2014.

Hey, to each his own, it's all good. All I'm saying is, you can only hold onto the past for so long. I don't want to get into an argument over something this silly. To each his own.

You would be surprised how many old 32 bit software are running and will run in the future.
indeed.
I currently run 64bit windows 7. all my 32 bit apps are perfectly fine.

I did however rue the loss of my 16 bit apps.
