Microsoft announced today that almost half of the PCs running Windows 7 are running the 64-bit edition, a number that is sure to grow to “more than half” soon as shipments of 64-bit machines continue to outpace 32-bit machines (77% to 23% in April 2010).

Along with this milestone, Microsoft’s recent release of its “R2″ versions of Server 2003 and Server 2008 demonstrate that 32-bit Microsoft computing is rapidly headed the way of Microsoft 16-bit computing 10-15 years ago.
