Microsoft introduced Windows Server 2008 R2 at the 2008 Professional Developers Conference as the server variant of Windows 7. A reviewer guide published by the company describes several areas of improvement, notably the inclusion of a number of new virtualization capabilities, reduced power consumption, a new set of management tools, new Active Directory capabilities such as a "recycle bin" for deleted AD objects, a new FTP server, DNSSEC support, and an increase in the number of supported processing cores from 64 to 256. 32-bit processors are no longer supported.
However the system requirements table below shows:
- 1 GHz (x86) or 1.4 GHz (x64)
- 512 MB RAM (may limit performance and some features) 2 GB RAM or higher
- Maximum (32-bit systems): 4GB RAM (Standard) or 64GB RAM (Enterprise and Datacenter)

Although you can install a 32-bit operating system on a computer that has a 64-bit CPU, you cannot install a 64-bit operating system on a computer that has a 32-bit CPU.
so, does it mean that M$ markets its regular Win32 Server version as Win64?
