That just depends really on who you are (personal or business user), and what kinds of specialist hardware you are using.

In the almost 5 years that I've been using Vista x64 and Seven x64, the only problem I've encountered with drivers are for a scanner (Canon Lide20, for which only 32-bit is available), and cell phones and 3G modems:

A lot of my clients use their cell phones as a modem, and finding x64 drivers has proven a nightmare, which is repeated with the use of dedicated 3G modems. thus far, all cases have been resolved by moving to 32-bit Windows.

But other than that, the really is no reason to even thnk about which to choose, when clearly x64 is the better choice.

My advice to the TS would be to go x64 now and grow accustomed to it now, and not be left in the cold when Windows 8 is released in only x64...
