    Nope, the preview will be x86 only as far as I know. We'll have to wait for the other platforms. I guess there will be a WP10 DP at some point.

    He means the Wintel cpus (x86 means general x86 architecture, not only "32 bits").

    I have read it's one ISO for all platforms, each activated with an activation key. Windows has only been 64 bit from Win 7 64 forward. There was no 32 bit Windows 8.

    Yes, yes there is...I just happen to be running it on an old Pentium 4 (reason being, it actually runs smoother than both XP and 7 on that system).

    The Atom tablets run 32-bit Windows 8.x. While Atom's may be x64 capable, they're typically given a x86/32-bit install for whatever reason. (Source: My Dell)

    though i think if you get a vanilla windows 8 64bit iso from digitalriver,you can use the official oem product key for the 32bit install already in your system to install 64bit instead

    yeah thats the only obstacle however i must say i had a sony vaio cr11gh running windows vista 32bit and i upgraded it to 64bit windows 7 home premium and i upgraded the ram to 2gb,i couldnt find drivers for windows 7 64bit for my model but i tried another upper model from the same series- CR series and tried that driver,worked like a charm
