What do the people with 32bit cpus who won't/can't upgrade?

I hope for the apps, not for the system. I don't want to become Linux
the next Vista..

> 3: Enhanced performance-critical computational capabilities (if you do a lot of complex HD photo, HD video, or HD audio work, or if you do a lot of raw complex math on your computer, this is EXTREMELY important)

Thanks for the answer. :)
