"if you want to take advantage of all the 64 bit OS goodness with more available memory etc. you will also have to upgrade your applications software to 64 bit versions to take full advantage or just go with the 32 bit W7 OS and keep your present app software"

You make it sound like the 64-bit OS cannot run her current 32-bit apps which is patently false. Consider that Office 2007 does not have a 64-bit version, yet I am running O2K7 on my 64-bit Win7 machine right now. The browser I am using at this very moment is the 32-bit version of IE (which comes with the OS). You need to be more careful with either your wording or your research.
