MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0 are the last 32-bit versions of SharePoint

There, I said it.

So make sure your current servers will support 64 bit.

This was picked from Joel's blog, item #5.

5. Verify that the hardware standards list in your company supports x64 servers as this is the last version on 32- bit.  If this isn't something you've looked into.  Research 64-bit architectures and how they contribute to performance and scale.

Sound off but keep it civil:

Hey Sahil,

I believe that MOSS 2007 currently can run on 64-bit as well as 32-Bit.

Odd that they're dropping 32-Bit completely..nevertheless, there's probably sound reasoning for doing so.

You are right. It is 32 + 64 right now.

I think it's good that they are dropping 32bit support, so they can concentrate on getting the 64 bit story right. Y'know the whole limited dev resources issue.

Hi Sahil,

We have got Windows Server 2003 R2, Standard x64 edition for our production server setup, but how do I know whether we have installed 64-bit or 32-bit MOSS-2007 on this server setup?
