Personally, I think it'd almost be perfectly safe to offer just 32bit
by default. It'll be almost guaranteed to run. Someone wanting 64bit
will know enough to click a little bit more and find the 64bit version.
Only exception to these thoughts would be the PowerPC ones which I'm
not the most familiar with.|
