In some areas it is possible for owners of two automobiles to insure both under the one policy. The proviso is that both cannot be driven on the road at the same time.
Why therefore is it not possible [well, legal as far as MS is concerned] to install both the 64bit and 32bit Windows 7 on one computer and I mean on separate drives. After all one purchases both install disks and it is not possible to use both versions at the same time!
There are good reasons for using 64bit but there are still some 32bit programs that I want to run but which will not run under the 64bit Windows 7. As far as I can see one could still install RAM for the 64bit without a problem even though the 32bit would not use it all.
Just another way for MS to be dictatorial? It is obvious they would be making more profit by forcing one to purchase another version for a second computer – in which case both disks would once again be included. Greed or stupidity? Perhaps both!
