Why are you still using 32bit in this day.

To avoid driverproblems w. older hardware.
Not all hw has 64-bit drivers.

maybe some things are not supported anymore like simple mechanical apparatus. i know some place where win95 is still
used because of software and drivers to operate lathes and mills that are still in use, and not only that the cad software
that supports the lathe i still in DOS.

I use Windows at 64 bit but with a lot of "*32" processes.
Sometimes the problem of the old 32 bit drivers is crucial.
The emulation layer of the CPU can help in this  situation (VirtuaBox and others CPU hypervisors ...but this is another topic)

For software reverse engineering I still use 32bit OS. There are lot more tools and softs for this topic. Also I think x64dbg has still too many bugs compare to olly!

Give me one good reason to upgrade all my existing x86 apps (after all what's the point of upgrading the OS to x64 and running x86 apps?) which I'm completely happy with both in terms of performance and stability.

Will a typical application run faster? Use less memory? use less CPU? be in some spiritual way "better"? offer me any advantage what so ever?

For me it only becomes a meaningful exercise when a significant number of application either no longer support x86 or offer some real advantage to the x64 version. I only know of one app that I would like to upgrade and cannot because the latest version does not support x86 - VidCoder. And even in that case the x86 version still functions perfectly well.

lol
funny you should say Vidcoder, how many cpu threads are you using.
me 6 core, 12 threads cpu, 24GB memory. plus GTX1070 with CUDA Cores: 1920.

I could not go back to x86, I like my 4 lcd screens.

Some people who still use the parallel port and MACH3 with their CNC machine, might still be using x86 Windows OS (not me, I use a FPGA driven BOB).
In x64 OS, parallel port is no longer supported.

Ah, the classic tortoise and hare. Do you really need all that processing power, running a mini NSA or bitcoin mining?

For Mentor Graphics Xpedition Enterprise VX.2.2, I have been working on installing both 32-bit and 64-bit files together. And I learned from this experience that Mentor Graphics's head is also confused in this matter.
