There's a reason why people don't get 64-bit MS Windows with their boxes.

Well, you get 64 bit Vista with Lenovo Laptops. And yes, you can't get a
Cisco VPN client.

Dunno why they must insist on running 64-bit openSUSE, when running 32-bit
MS
Windows doesn't seem to bother them any.

That's completely different. Windows on 64 bit has issues with office
too, while Linux is known to work better on those systems. Moreover many
64 bit users have workstations (not all of them are home users), and
they still need java, flash and such because their workstation is also
their PC.

That's the situation for most users here. They need 64 bit for their self
written programs, but need a fully working browser on the exactly same
machine.
