    32-bit. Simply because I haven't needed to run 64.
    I'm thinking that will change this year, though.

    Mostly 64 bit. So my vote goes to ...... 64bit.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    32 bit until I get more RAM....I'll be forced to use 64 bit then.
