Historically 64 bit programs have rarely ever been faster than their 32 bit counterparts of the same software. But stability-wise it sounds like he's convinced its worth convincing the 6% to upgrade or bid them GG.

I'd guess they made the 32 bit version because they didn't know how few people would end up running 32 bit. Seems like a good move and less people affected than when they moved EQ1 up a DirectX version and gave refunds to quite a few people. Ironically they probably haven't updated those graphics since.
