The future is 64-bit
I get a ton of mail about configuring CS apps for use on older systems. Folks in public service often replace their systems every 3-5 years (vs. private firms that tend to upgrade every 18 months).
If you are in public service, keep this announcement in mind when preparing your next purchase order. Future releases of After Effects and Premiere Pro* will only run on 64-bit systems.
If you are spec'ing out new systems, 64-bit PCs running Win7 64 should work fine with Adobe's apps. Mac users already know that their systems will be fine. We were 64-bit before 64-bit was cool.
*According to Adobe, Photoshop will still support both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
