Yes , but you wasted that time much more efficiently with 64 bits.

Funny I had a works HP2570p it had a i5 and win7 64bit installed out of the box.
not surprised it took hours installing now Win10 pro takes about 20 mins to install from scratch.
and all the drivers are there for most machines. only thing I like to add is startmenu 8 so it looks like win7
but with the speed of win 10. yes you can see the difference.
As for using old software/hardware why clog a fast machine
my work horse laptop is a Samsung 350 & 15" 16GB ram and 1TB SSD drive. to use another set up I swap out the drive.

Bit the bullet, and installed win7 x64 ult from scratch, hours downloading and installing 64bit versions of apps (surprised how few), tweaking back to the way I like it and the end result is I can't tell the difference. What a total waste of time.

I don't know what you expected to notice off the bat, but I would venture to say if you benchmarked the 32 bit programs vs their 64 bit counterparts now, you will probably see improvements...  Even more, improvements if you leverage the 64-Bit biggest perk by putting in more RAM, I see the HP2570p can handle 16GB, so install 8 or 16 and I would suspect there will be a noticeable difference in performance, especially on 64bit programs...

Also note, you are likely not going to see much improvement on the existing 32bit programs, as they are now being run in an emulation subsystem...  To leverage the full advantage of a 64bit OS you really need to run 64bit programs as well...

I rather suspect that the opposite is true.

I guess thats pretty much a given.

I wonder how long it will be before Intel et al. see a dip in their revenue stream and release the increasingly pointless 128bit blunderbus.

In work we are still using old systems PLC - Hitachi H702 series and serial displays Omron - DT021. For displays only DOS program to upload messages.... So there are in the firm 386 machine still with Win 98 and native com ports...

I rather suspect that the opposite is true.

If you Google around have been several benchmark comparisons, generally 32-bit software run on a 64-bit OS system is at best marginally faster, but sometimes marginally slower...  Essentially it's a wash for most 32-bit software...

I see nothing pointless about it, progress happens and although I love 8-bit CPU arcade games and enjoy 8-bit micros, I sure as heck would not want to be stuck using only 8-bit hardware exclusively in today's computing world...

It's hard to predict the computing future and I think the 64-bit will be mainstream for quite some time as the software and even hardware is far from exploiting its theoretical limits, that said 32-bit computers had their day, but the reality is they are no longer able to keep up with the demands of many  in today's computing world... I'm running 16GB of RAM on this laptop and wish I could cram more in as I can easily bog down the system and tax the RAM with just my daily multitasking if I don't pay attention, I can't even begin to imagine trying to run it with only 4GB...
