Re: Why must MS make multiple versions of Windows? What I don't understand with windows 7 is why they sold windows 7 64bit preinstalled with computers, but you have to buy windows 7 32bit, shouldn't it have been the opposite way around?
not in ohio
Why? Today's computers are 64-bit. Microsoft wants everyone to rely on Windows. Making them pay extra for a version of Windows that actually supports their hardware is not a good 'customer base continuation' strategy.
Besides which, it's the computer vendor hat decides which version to install. Computer vendors want to sell you as much hardware as possible - which means more than 4GB RAM, which means 64-bit Windows.

I'm not sure why you would need or 'have to' buy 32-bit, but keys are good for both 32-bit and 64-bit, you just have to figure out how to get a hold of the install media. Win 7 Ultimate retail has both discs included.
