Windows 64

If I recall correctly:

Windows 2000 and XP were only 32-bit
Windows Vista and WIndows 7 came in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions (you 
have to buy the version you wanted. They were sold separately)
Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 are available ONLY as 64-bit OSes

So, while Microsoft maintains 32-bit compatibility and probably will for 
several more versions of their OSes simply to support the massive amount 
of old programs people still run, they have encouraged that all new apps 
be 64-bit for some time now.
