Aaroona:Behodar: I'm calling it a glitch as Apple states that only servers should be 64-bit by default. If your desktop clean install went to 64-bit, then something is not performing as Apple says it should.
For the record, my clean install is 32-bit.
Also, could you please point me to where Apple says by default 32bit?
It's only logical given not all OS X software is 64 bit at the moment.
If the kernel was running in 64 bit mode no 32 bit program would be able to be launched or run right ?
