Its all a matter of how you look at it.  If it turns out that a lot of
64bit hardware owners are running 32bit Fedora 11, then we can
probably assume the function of such a page is a high impact tool
acting as a guide a significant portion of our userbase towards
install media.  If that's so then it probably deserves a lot of
attention and scrutiny for first impression impact.

If on the other hand people with 64bit systems are predominately
installing the 64bit version, even though its not exposed on that page
then we can probably say that our current userbase demographics are
very technically saavy, and that the details of the contents of that
sort of on-ramp page doesn't particularly matter to them.
