Default 32 and 64 bit

Sorry if this has been asked a few times already but I have tried to look at find this answer but I haven't been able.

With WinXP and Vista, what is the difference between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions? THanks!

I have no idea how computer-savvy you are, but here's a basic article comparing 32 and 64 bit processors.

If you know a little more about computers, here's a more in-depth article about 64-bit processors.
