From a coding point of view I can understand why it wouldn't be worth it but, to say a 64bit application is the same performance wise as a 32bit is just wrong.
but the information is still processed one at a time? I heard in some situations 64 bit apps can slow down the system and is really only good for addressing over 3gig of ram?
