I imagine that things like this might change as 64-bit becomes the 
norm.  A coworker of mine was just faced with deciding on which CPU 
to buy for a home computer.  He was overwhelmed by the 64-bit 
offerings.  At some point the market will go there and leave 32-bit 
behind.  I expect that 32-bit will be with us for a long time tho.
I for one am still using a Pentium I for my email/web/document

Is that a function of VST or of Ardour or what?

Can I presume that all of these points are non-issues when running in 
32-bit mode on a 64-bit machine?  So many of the non-music related 
issues, e.g. flash plugins, disappear when running in 32-bit mode.
