Oh please, the US is just offloading their economic fragility on everybody else because they can: so you may not be in recession technically, but the fact that you are printing dollars on demand and dumping your crappy "financial inventions" on the rest of the world is hiding the fact that you are in fact far over the edge of a default.

Temporarily abandoning the 64bit Windows builds is more of a lack of resources than poor development.
Please also note that Chrome is not available for 64 bit Windows either...
