I'm sticking with 32bit for the next few years - I have applications for modelling that are written in 16bit and I do use them regularly. I'm aware I can run these in a VM but have no reason to go 64 yet, nor do I need more than 2GB of RAM. So I don't really have a reason to move. The only possible reason I can think of moving 64bit for me will be so I can run 64bit VM's to host 64bit OS's like 2008r2 for testing and certs.

I nearly fell off my chair looking at that website...

you can add the 64bit driver to the network printer using additional drivers button. This is the same procedure for installing Windows 9x drivers. This will become more and more important as Windows Server 2008 R2 is 64bit only. You add the 32bit drivers this way on a 64bit server.
I have found that some machines won't let you install the 32bit driver on 64bit server locally. You can however do it using Windows 7 Print management console on a 32 bit version of Windows. %systemroot%\system32\printmanagement.msc

Another factor is that while in general the 32-bit flavor of Windows 7 is more secure than previous MS Operating Systems, going 64-bit takes it to another level due to Kernel Patch Protection. We are almost completely transitioned from XP to Windows 7 Pro x64. Only one legacy app remains that will not run locally on the workstations and for that we published the app from our XenApp farm. Only a small group of users need the application and even they do not use it very often.
