Hello MegaFixer.

I'm not sure; is this what you're looking for?

Windows 7 x86

That article also says Windows 7 is not going going to offer an x86 version, which they clearly are. So that article is slightly outdated

However the system requirements table below shows:
Processor: Minimum/Recommended
  • 1 GHz (x86) or 1.4 GHz (x64)
  • 2 GHz or faster
  • 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)
wth, o_O

so, does it mean that M$ markets its regular Win32 Server version as Win64?
