	Win10 has a 32-bit version?  

	I thought MS said Win8 was the last version that would
ship in a 32-bit version with their eventual intension to be getting
rid of 32-bit support entirely (for reasons like it supporting
various legacy design constraints that make it harder to manage(control)
as an end-user-platform, for example)?
