That'll never happen! There's too many people that still use the 32 bit version of Vista and the driver fiasco with that was a major issue in (and of) itself.

Until the hardware companies can get the drivers reliable, then there's always going to be people using 32 bit OS's.

The 64bit driver issue really only effects people that are using hardware that is more then 4 years old. Anyone running hardware that doesn't have 64bit drivers available should probably ditch it anyways, since it would be apparent that the company manufacturing that hardware has no long term plans to support it. I'm really not surprised they are bringing out windows 7 sooner then they brought out vista. 4 years between OS's was MS's usual roll out and when they left one of the OS's out for about 8 years, well lets just say its hard to get people to switch to something else when they've been attached to a particular product for many years.
