Hi All:

We are developing  (actually updating) a piece of code that runs in R.  Due to some limitations of some the libraries we use, at the present time we would be limited to the 32-bit version of R on Windows.  Does anyone have a feel (or even real knowledge) if most people  these days run R on Windows in 32-bit or 64-bit mode?  This would affect some development decisions.
